The Madison County Office of Emergency Management (OEM) is the managerial function charged with creating the framework within which communities reduce vulnerability to hazards and cope with disasters.
MC OEM Mission:
Emergency Management protects the whole community by coordinating and integrating all activities necessary to build, sustain, and improve the capability to mitigate against, prepare for, respond to, and recover from threatened or actual hazards and disasters.
The threat of hazards and disasters, both natural and man-made, requires continuous attention from the whole community. Madison County OEM accomplishes our mission by providing training and operational support to law enforcement agencies, fire departments, EMS agencies, local governments, school districts, colleges/universities, private industries, and the public.
Madison County OEM also includes the Madison County Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP), aka the 911 Center. The PSAP is operational 24/7 to ensure that a well-trained public safety communicator will be there to answer your call for help.
