Emergency management is an essential government service. Its purpose is to apply resources and efforts to mitigate, prevent when possible, protect where feasible, and to respond and recover from all threats and hazards that impact the safety and security of the nation.

 

Phases of Emergency Management Emergencies and disasters can pose both short and long-term public policy challenges, including continuity of government, public health, economic development, the environment, agriculture, and technology. In addition to natural disasters, emergency management must deal with complex issues like climate adaptation, cybersecurity, countering terrorism, critical infrastructure interdependencies, infectious disease outbreaks, and school safety. While not necessarily the lead agency in every event, emergency management is responsible for coordinating the overall state response. Having an effective emergency management system in place can help minimize the potentially devastating impact from emergencies and disasters.
