Our Mission

Emergency management is a coordinated effort, involving local, state, and federal agencies as well as volunteer organizations. These organizations assist the public and communities to prepare for, respond, and recover from the effects of natural, civil, and technological emergencies and disasters. The primary goal of emergency management is to promote awareness, prevent injuries, save lives, and reduce property damage in our community.

About Us

1 of 7

Lea County Emergency Management is responsible for planning the responses of small- and large-scale emergency situations to save lives, reduce injuries and preserve property. Emergencies and disasters, both natural and man-made, can affect every resident in Lea County. Sometimes threats occur that we simply cannot control or prevent from happening; ie, wildfires, hazardous-material spills and riots. However, from every family to every public safety department in Lea County, we all can prepare for how we respond to these emergencies. Preparing your family's responses to emergencies is critical, and it takes just three steps:
  • 1. Make a family emergency plan
  • 2. Get an emergency supply kit
  • 3. Be informed about the different types of emergencies that could occur in your area and their appropriate responses.
