The Emergency Management & Homeland Security Office is responsible for dealing with all aspects of disasters, including planning for major disasters which might affect the County, and coordinating the recovery efforts following actual disasters. The Michigan Emergency Management Act stipulates that each county shall appoint an emergency coordinator to be responsible for disaster preparedness. In Genesee County the Emergency Management Manager is responsible for the day to day activities of mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery. 

Mitigation: Eliminate, reduce or prevent long-term risk to human life and property from natural and man-made hazards.

Emergency Preparedness: Advance planning for an emergency that develops operational capabilities and facilitates an effective response in the event an emergency occurs.

Emergency Response: Action taken immediately before, during or directly after an emergency to save lives, minimize damage to property and enhance the effectiveness of recovery.

Recovery: Short-term activity to return vital life support systems to minimum operating standards and long term activity designed to return life to normal or improved levels.

The Genesee County Emergency Management Division works closely with local first responder agencies, nonprofit disaster relief organizations, private, and governmental agencies regarding emergency planning, response and recovery for communities within Genesee County.
