Emergency management works to create a framework that will assist communities in reducing vulnerabilities to hazards and to help those communities cope with disasters.


The National Preparedness Goal identified mission areas within which communities must build and sustain capabilities. Using a Whole Community approach, Emergency Management supports or executes the below mission areas both locally and regionally:

  1. Prevention:The capabilities necessary to avoid, present or stop a threatened or actual act of terrorism. As defined by Presidential Policy Directive 8 (PPD-8), the term "prevention" refers to preventing imminent threats.
  2. Protection:The capabilities necessary to secure the homeland against acts of terrorism and human-caused or natural disasters.
  3. Mitigation:The capabilities necessary to reduce loss of life and property by lessening the impact of disasters.
  4. Response:The capabilities necessary to save lives, protect property and the environment and meet basic human needs after an incident has occurred.
  5. Recovery:The capabilities necessary to assist communities affected by an incident to recover effectively.
