The Williams County Emergency Management Department works before, during, and after emergencies to minimize impacts on the community. Our work depends upon coordination with others in emergency response, government, the private sector, and community stakeholders to advocate for planning, response, recovery, and mitigation. Our mission is to provide a resilient emergency management structure dedicated to the safety and welfare of the public through the preservation of life, health, property, and the environment.

The goal of Emergency Management is a community that withstands all hazards, adapts quickly to disruptions, and returns to normal day-to-day life as soon as possible.
