Emergency Management

Mission Statement

The mission of the Geary County Emergency Management Department is to ensure that local capabilities exist for the effective mitigation against, preparedness for, response to, and recovery from all types of major emergencies or disasters (natural, technological, and national security) that threatens Geary County.

Geary County Emergency Management is committed to working with the public, the media, and the response agencies not only during an emergency but prior to and after the incident. This is done in part by hosting drills that test the different parts of the Geary County Emergency Operations Plan. These drills utilize different response agencies to include: 

  • Fire
  • Hospitals
  • Law enforcement 
  • Local media
  • Medical
  • The private sector
  • Public works
