Domestic preparedness is a reality of the times in which we live. Lessons learned from the past indicate that coordination, communication, command and control are key to effective prevention, preparedness, response and recovery operations.
Pima County Office of Emergency Management is the local, federally mandated program of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
Pima County Office of Emergency Management (OEM) is an extension of the Arizona Department of Emergency and Military Affairs (AZDEMA) and the Arizona Department of Homeland Security (AZDOHS) at the county level.
OEM works to prevent the loss of life and reduce property damage due to man-made, technological and natural disasters.
We also assist municipalities and local governments with developing plans to ensure the highest level of preparedness.
