Emergency Management

The safety of all residents within Flagstaff County is ensured through a Municipal Emergency Plan (MEP) should a disaster occur within the County. Emergency responders, elected officials and municipal employees receive training to understand their roles should the MEP ever have to be activated. The MEP is updated regularly with the surrounding municipalities to assist in a coordinated approach with municipal resources if something were to happen.
