Emergency Management


Spicer.jpgTo lessen the impact of natural and man-made disasters upon the City of Suffolk by meeting the needs of our citizens through effective mitigation, planning, response and recovery.

This is accomplished thru a comprehensive emergency management program which includes:

  • Pre and post-disaster mitigation of known hazards to reduce their impact;
  • Preparedness activities, such as emergency planning, training, exercises and community education programs;
  • An effective response to emergency situations;
  • Focused recovery programs for major disasters.

Our all hazards approach to emergency planning includes threats from hurricanes and tropical storms, other weather emergencies, as well as man-made or technological emergencies such as major fires, mass casualty incidents, hazardous materials incidents and acts of terrorism.

In the event of a disaster, the Office of Emergency Management is responsible for the coordination of all local, state and federal emergency response agencies and for maintaining a coordinated, accurate, consistent flow of information and instructions to the citizens of the City of Suffolk.

Planning, continuous training and teamwork between the public and private sector have been the key to a quick response and successful recovery from past disasters that have impacted our City.
