The County's Office of Emergency Management coordinates efforts to ensure that the County is able to mitigate against, prepare for, respond to and recover from any type of natural or human-caused disaster. The County uses an all-hazards approach to emergency preparedness which means that planning efforts consider all types of disasters that could occur in the County.
Emergency Management resides under the Department of Fire and Rescue, we work in collaboration with our
whole community partners including the American Red Cross, Volunteer Prince William and many others.
In addition to emergency planning, we also:
Maintain the PWC Emergency Operations Center (EOC)
Oversee the PWC Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) and Hazard Mitigation Plan
Facilitate training and exercise programs on intra-agency, inter-agency and multi-jurisdictional levels
Manage Homeland Security grants from the federal government
