Emergency Management prepares for, responds to, and helps mitigate and recover from any natural or man-made disaster or act of terrorism through planning, education, training and exercises.
Rice County Emergency Management works with community partners to maximize the capability of the county to respond to and recover from disasters occurring throughout the county, and plans for and coordinates a countywide program of emergency management that will save lives and protect property in the event of an emergency.
Emergency Management is responsible for the development of plans and programs to maintain a state of readiness to meet natural, man-made and technological disasters on a local or countywide basis. It also coordinates and maintains inventories of disaster resources in the county, both public and private, as well as plans for the effective utilization of resources in the county and works closely with other emergency management offices in southeastern Minnesota.
