Nassau Co. Emergency Management (NCEM) is responsible for planning and coordinating prevention, mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery operations. We are committed to excellence, leading local efforts to improve community resilience by helping residents and visitors stay aware of potential hazards, developing plans to act when one strikes, and identifying resources to help the county recover quickly. Our strategic plan is designed to exceed the rigorous standards set by the Emergency Management Accreditation Program (EMAP), and we want you, our stakeholders, to be actively involved.
During “blue-sky” operations, NCEM planners update disaster preparedness and recovery plans; conduct vulnerability assessments; provide preparedness education, drills, and exercises; facilitate risk reduction projects; and monitor media to maintain situational awareness.
What We Do at the Emergency Operations Center (EOC)
In a major emergency, local experts in various support functions (e.g., mass care, fire rescue, public works) are activated to staff the EOC, which becomes the coordination point for gathering information, issuing public warnings, and managing the resources necessary to conduct vital response and recovery operations. See EOC Activation Levels to learn more.
