Emergency Management

To protect the health, safety and welfare of our community with pride and professionalism.

Emergency Management is dedicated to providing professional and fiscally responsible service to our community. We continuously strive to improve the preparedness and protection of Okaloosa county residents and visitors. We do this through public outreach, educational programs, coordination of multi-agency plans and responses and interaction with state agencies. 

In the event of an emergency and if the Emergency Operations Center Activates, up-to-date information can be found at this website, by downloading the Ready Okaloosa App and pushed out to media and social media outlets.
