Duval County Emergency Management encourages individuals to be prepared so that in the face of adversity we can effectively and efficiently respond as a community together.
The City of Jacksonville Emergency Preparedness Division responds to all types of emergencies and disasters including, but not limited to: apartment fires, hurricanes, tornadoes, gas leaks, hazardous material spills, building collapse, and flooding.
The reason we plan for recovery is so that all of the partners involved – the school district, the city, the Beaches, the local businesses, and others – can ensure that everyone’s concerns are addressed after a disaster.
The Emergency Preparedness Division supports the Prevention mission area through planning, public information & warning, operation coordination, and intelligence and information sharing.
Duval County maintains a Local Mitigation Strategy (LMS) Plan aimed at defining the hazards that threaten the community and identifying measures to reduce the impacts of those hazards.
