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.
The work of Emergency Management is a cooperative effort among all aspects, departments and divisions of County government. This includes Fire, Sheriff, Public Works, Budget and Finance, County Manager, Commissioners, Building Department, District Attorney, Assessor, Recorder and Clerk, all working together to mitigate any actual or potential disaster or event. 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.
RESOLVE TO BE READY IN 2013
Please prepare and plan in the event you must go for three days without electricity, water service, access to a supermarket, or local services for several days. Just follow these three steps:
1. Get a Kit: Keep enough emergency supplies on hand for you and those in your care – water, non-perishable food, first aid, prescriptions, flashlight, battery-powered radio – for a checklist of supplies visit Ready.gov.
2. Make a Plan: Discuss, agree on, and document an emergency plan with those in your care. For sample plans, see Ready.gov. Work together with neighbors, colleagues and others to build community resilience.
3. Be Informed: Free information is available to assist you from federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial resources. You can find preparedness information by accessing Ready.gov to learn what to do before, during, and after an emergency.
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, and work together as a team to keep everyone safe.
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 www.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.
Above all, start now, take small steps, and before you know it, you will be Ready!
