Clear Creek Office of Emergency Management
The Clear Creek County Office of Emergency Management prepares for managing the consequences of natural and human-caused disasters, emergencies, and events. This is done through a comprehensive program of mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery.
Activities & Responsibilities
- Mitigation: Activities that eliminate or reduce the chance of occurrence or effects of a disaster
- Preparedness: The time prior to the onset of a threat, emergency, or disaster; it involves planning and activities that are focused on improving the overall capability of responding to and managing emergencies or disasters
- Increased Readiness: Responding to the forecast of a disaster; county departments monitor and assess conditions that could develop into a major emergency or disaster situation and keep the Office of Emergency Management informed of any potential problems
- Response: This starts at the onset of an emergency or disaster event and continues until the situation is stabilized or brought under control
- Initial Relief and Recovery: This starts as soon as the situation becomes stabilized and continues until essential services are re-established and long-term recovery planning and redevelopment activities can begin
Disaster management and the resources to deal with it require a partnership among all levels of government, the private / business sector, voluntary organizations, and the general public/community.
