Emergency Management

Emergency Preparation & Response

Brown County Emergency Management & Brown County Public Health are dedicated to mitigate against, prepare for, respond to, and recover from any disaster whether it is natural, man-made or an act of terrorism through education, training and exercising.

Emergency preparation & response is the responsibility of the Brown County Emergency Management Office and Brown County Public Health. Together they are responsible for developing and maintaining the county Emergency Operations Plans (EOP), five-year training and exercise plans, and the Hazard Mitigation Plan. They work with multiple representatives from our community including first responders, health care professionals, educators, non-profit agencies, volunteer organizations, businesses and more to establish the EOP and relationships among community members throughout Brown County.

A Brown County Emergency Management Coalition, which is a county-wide committee of community stakeholders, has been developed and meets on a quarterly basis to discuss many different topics effecting Brown County and its residents.
