Emergency Management Agency (EMA)

Emergency management is a coordinated effort, involving local, state, and federal government agencies as well as volunteer organizations and businesses.

Within an integrated emergency management framework, these entities assist citizens and their communities to prepare for, respond to, recover from, and eliminate or reduce the effects of natural, man-made, civil, and technological emergencies or disasters.


The curfew in place for 9pm – 5am continues for the evening of June 3, 2020.  We will continue to consult with local law enforcement and community partners daily on the security needs for the curfew to remain in effect and update citizens accordingly.  Thank you for your continued cooperation in these challenging times.
