Mission Statement

To provide leadership and support to reduce the loss of life and property and protect our County’s institutions from all types of hazards through a comprehensive, risk-based, all-hazards emergency management program of mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery.

The job of the Emergency Manager is defined by law. It does however, have a moral basis. The Emergency Manager must balance the duties authorized and required by law with the moral obligation of the public employee to do everything possible to protect and preserve the safety of citizens in the city, villages and county.

Emergency Management expresses a strong commitment to provide interagency cooperation and coordination of activities relating to mitigation of, prevention of, preparedness for, response to, and recovery from, disasters and emergencies.

Hamilton County has a full time Director and a part time Deputy Director.
