The overall mission of the Hancock County Emergency Management is to ensure the safety of the people and property of Hancock County. We strive to accomplish this goal through the following actions:
By identifying which hazards have the potential of affecting Hancock County
By identifying how people, property, and structures within this area could possibly be damaged/injured in the event of a disaster
By preparing the community through mitigation, by communicating appropriate information, and coordination of various community departments, agencies, and volunteer groups. We also attempt to appropriately and efficiently respond to disasters, and coordinate disaster recovery assistance.
