Clear Creek Office of Emergency Management

The Clear Creek County Office of Emergency Management establishes and facilitates processes and structures for the systematic coordination and effective delivery of services that address the consequences of natural and human-caused disasters, emergencies, and events 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

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.
