message-star Emergency Management

Platte County Emergency Management/Homeland Security Unit is responsible for preparing for and carrying out all emergency functions necessary to mitigate, prepare for, respond to, and recover from significant incidents and disasters including the extended disruption of county governmental services caused by all hazards, whether natural, technological, or man-made.

The unit coordinates all four phases of emergency preparedness. The four phases are: Mitigation (efforts to minimize the impact of a disaster), Preparedness (planning/training), Response (the response and coordination of resources to an incident), and Recovery (restoration of services as quickly as possible). The Emergency Management Coordinators represent the County of Platte on local, regional and national committees and issues relating to emergency management and homeland security.
