Clear Creek Office of Emergency Management
The Clear Creek County Office of Emergency Management (CCCOEM) is responsible for establishing and facilitating a process and structure for the systematic coordination and effective delivery of public safety services. These services address the consequences of the destructive forces of natural and man-made disasters through a comprehensive program of mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery.

Activities & Responsibilities
  • Mitigation: Activities that eliminate or reduce the chance of occurrence or effects of a disaster
  • Preparedness: The time prior to the onset of a threat, emergency, or disaster; it involves planning and activities that are focused on improving the overall capability of responding to and managing emergencies or disasters
  • Increased Readiness: Responding to the forecast of a disaster; county departments monitor and assess conditions that could develop into a major emergency or disaster situation and keep the Office of Emergency Management informed of any potential problems
  • Response: This starts at the onset of an emergency or disaster event and continues until the situation is stabilized or brought under control
  • Initial Relief and Recovery: This starts as soon as the situation becomes stabilized and continues until essential services are re-established and long-term recovery planning and redevelopment activities can begin

Partnerships
The burden of disaster management, and the resources to deal with it, require a partnership among all levels of government, the private / business sector, voluntary organizations, and the general public / community.
