Lake County Emergency Management

The office of Emergency Management is responsible for:

MITIGATION

Mitigation refers to measures that reduce the chance of an emergency happening or reduce the damaging effects of unavoidable emergencies.

PREPAREDNESS

Preparedness activities increase a community’s ability to respond when a disaster occurs. The National Incident Management System (NIMS) defines preparedness as “a continuous cycle of planning, organizing, training, equipping, exercising, evaluating, and taking corrective action in an effort to ensure effective coordination during incident response.”

RESPONSE

The response phase includes the mobilization of the necessary emergency services and first responders in the disaster area. This is likely to include a first wave of core emergency services, such as firefighters, police and ambulance crews. One of the first response tasks is to conduct a situation assessment. Local government is responsible for emergency response and for continued assessment of its ability to protect its citizens and property within the community. To fulfill this responsibility, responders and local government officials must conduct an immediate rapid assessment of the local situation.

RECOVERY

The goal of recovery is to return a community to normal or near-normal conditions. Recovery differs from the response phase in its focus; recovery efforts are concerned with issues and decisions that must be made after immediate needs are addressed. They are primarily concerned with actions that involve the restoration of basic services and the repair of physical, social and economic damages.
