Franklin County Emergency Management Agency
The Emergency Management Agency is formed under the direction of the Emergency Management Commission. The Emergency Management Commission consists of mayors of the communities within the county, the county Sheriff and a member of the county Board of Supervisors. It is the responsibility of the commission to appoint an Emergency Management Coordinator to manage the county's program. This coordinator position is shared with Cerro Gordo County.
The mission of Franklin County Emergency Management Agency is to provide for the protection of life and property by assisting its citizens to prepare for, respond to, recover from, and prevent or reduce the effects of a disaster - whether it is natural or manmade.
Emergency Management involves local, state, and federal government agencies, as well as volunteer organizations and businesses working as a coordinated team. These organizations operate together during times of disaster using the County-Wide Multi-Hazard Emergency Operations Plan as their guide. This plan incorporates all resources within the county, as well as those made available through mutual aid agreements with other counties, and those resources available from the State or Federal Governments.
