    ABOUT US

    The mission of Uvalde County Office Emergency Management is to provide a high level of preparedness, protect the citizens and property of Uvalde County and to mitigate loss of life and vital assets prior to, during, and the immediate aftermath of a disaster along with facilitating the timely recovery of Uvalde County following a disaster.

    Uvalde County’s Office of Emergency Management (OEM) has the responsibility to coordinate all City and County emergency response plans. OEM’s responsibilities are to identify vulnerabilities, effectively mitigate disasters, assist with public and first responder education, respond to emergency situations when activated, protect Uvalde County’s first responders, ensure continuity of government and business, and to facilitate an effective recovery. OEM will coordinate with local, regional, state, and federal agencies, as well as private entities to develop, maintain, and implement the Emergency Operations Plan (EOP).

    During a major disaster or emergency, response and recovery activities are coordinated from the County’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC). From the EOC, heads of various departments and agencies work in a unified command to respond to the emergency.
