Emergency Management

  • Emergency management is the managerial function charged with creating the framework within which communities reduce vulnerability to hazards and cope with disasters.
  • Emergency management seeks to promote safer, less vulnerable communities with the capacity to cope with hazards and disasters. 
  • Emergency management protects communities by coordinating and integrating all activities necessary to build, sustain, and improve the capability to mitigate against, prepare for, respond to, and recover from threatened or actual natural disasters, acts of terrorism, or other man-made disasters.
  • Emergency management for the City of Muscatine is coordinated through the Emergency Management office of Muscatine County.
