Emergency Preparedness

Grand County Office of Emergency Management is committed to preparing for, mitigating against, responding to, and recovering from virtually any disaster.

The Office of Emergency Management is continually evaluating county hazards and seeking ways to keep our preparedness level at the highest possible stage. In accordance with the Grand County Emergency Operations Plan, training exercises conducted throughout the year help maintain staff proficiency and response capability. The following are some of our favorite resources for additional information and steps you can take in order to prepare yourself and home:

The EOP provides a basis for coordinated planning and management of types of emergencies and disaster events most likely to occur in Grand County and those emergencies and disaster events of "countywide interest".

Mitigation Plans

In our attempts to reduce the impacts caused by a disaster, Grand County is updating plans for preparedness, mitigation, response, and recovery.

Registration for Disaster Assistance

United Way, in collaboration with the Grand County Office of Emergency Management and the Grand County Council on Aging, announces service of 211. This service could positively impact any individual living in the Grand County area that may require assistance in the event of an evacuation or extended in-place sheltering.
