Welcome to the Delaware County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management
The Delaware County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management’s main goal is to save lives, prevent injuries, and protect property and the environment from “All Hazards” – Natural, Manmade, or Terrorism.
In the event of a disaster, we coordinate the county’s resources and agencies to reduce the impact it has on the county. We strive to expedite the restoration of public services, the rehabilitation and recovery of individuals and businesses, and to return the community back to normal. We achieve our goals through the four phases of emergency management (Mitigation, Preparedness, Response, and Recovery), conducting training and training exercises, and through education.
