Integrated Preparedness Planning Workshop (IPPW)

The Elk County Emergency Management Mission Statement: We will strive for and advocate local capabilities to ensure effective mitigation against, preparedness for, response to and recovery from all types of major emergencies that could threaten Elk County.

Emergency Management oversees the preparation of planning strategies & documents that would be used by county leadership  in response to any natural or manmade disaster or emergency situation affecting Elk County.  These planning & training processes are ongoing as technologies and potential hazards evolve.  By interfacing with local, state & federal officials, a swift & coordinated response to emergencies is the intended outcome.  This office also coordinates training of local storm spotters in Elk County.  Please consider volunteering your time to this important function.  Contact the Emergency Management Office for more information.

Emergency Management is the point of contact for the Elk County Emergency Notification System.  This automated system provides landline, cell phone and/or text notifications of emergency conditions & situations that could affect the safety and welfare of you and your family.  You can arrange for notifications through this service by downloading, completing & returning the Local Emergency Notification Request form which can be found in the Helpful Links section below.
