Step Up

“Keeping You Safe” is a primary goal of the Washington County emergency preparedness program. The County works locally and regionally with government agencies, non-profits, businesses, volunteer groups and residents through formal partnerships such as the Emergency Management Cooperative and Regional Disaster Preparedness Organization to minimize the effects of disasters and major emergencies on the community. Our efforts are significantly enhanced by the preparedness efforts of individuals, families and businesses. “Keeping You Safe” relies heavily on YOU.
