The Division of Emergency Management is responsible for the development, implementation and management of Ozaukee County's disaster prevention, preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation efforts. It is responsible for the county’s Emergency Response Plan (ERP) and coordinates the activities for the Ozaukee County Emergency Operations Center (EOC).
During a large scale, jurisdictional incident the EOC will serve as a central location where representatives of the public and private sectors convene to make decisions, set priorities and coordinate resources for response and recovery.
Our mission is to minimize the loss of life, injuries, and damage to property, the environment, and critical infrastructure while facilitating coordinated response and recovery actions following disaster or emergency situations in Ozaukee County. We use all hazards planning to develop and implement timely and effective mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery efforts.
