Emergency Management

Welcome to Storey County Emergency Management. Our primary function is to provide the planning and coordination of response, recovery, and mitigation of natural and man-made disasters occurring within Storey County.

Department Cooperation

Every day your Emergency Services team strives to provide the highest quality of service possible to our customers - the citizens and visitors of Storey County.

Community Cooperation
We have to work together as a team to ensure that individuals, families, and communities are ready:
  • Make a plan
  • Get an emergency supply kit
  • Stay informed
  • Work together as a team to keep everyone safe
Citizen Preparation
We’re taking steps as an organization to become educated, trained, and better prepared, and we urge you to take time this month to do the same at home, for your community. Take simple steps to better prepare yourself and your family.

In addition, we encourage you to visit Ready.gov for more information. If you have any questions on how you can be better prepared to deal with emergencies, please feel free to contact the Storey County Office of Emergency Management at 775-847-0986.
