Wayne County Emergency Management Office exists to protect the lives and preserve the property of Wayne County by preparing a plan of action to respond effectively and expeditiously to emergencies, disasters and hazards of all types; thereby preventing or mitigating the effects on people and property through the application of protective measures.

Wayne County utilizes the four phases of Comprehensive Emergency Management in designing and implementing the program. These phases are:

  • Mitigation – Any efforts of local, state and federal governments that reduce or eliminate the degree of long-term risk to human life and property from natural and manmade hazards. Emergency Management encourages hazard mitigation which includes flood analysis, land use regulations, building codes, public education and long range planning by local government.
  • Preparedness – Any activity taken in advance of an emergency that develops operational capabilities and facilitates an effective response in the event of an emergency. Examples are communications and warning systems, emergency operations plans and exercises, and mutual aid agreements.
  • Response – Actions taken immediately before, during or after an emergency occurs to save lives, minimize damage to property and enhance the effectiveness of recovery. The response agencies will act within their scope of training and will call up outside resources as needed to mitigate further damages.
  • Recovery – Recovery activities are those that are necessary to return life to normal in a disaster-stricken community. This may include short-term activity to return vital life-support systems to minimum operating standards and long-term activity to return life to normal or improved levels. Examples are damage assessment, Disaster Assistance Centers, crisis counseling and reassessment of Emergency Plans
