About The Office of Emergency Management
The Office of Emergency Management is responsible for maintaining the County’s All Hazard Emergency Operations Plan (AHEOP). An all-hazards approach to emergency preparedness means that planning efforts consider all types of disasters that could occur in the County.
The OEM serves as the liaison between the State and all local government subdivisions and works to engage the community at large, including local governments, businesses, and residents. The OEM provides preparedness presentations to local businesses, schools, community groups, and associations upon request. To request a preparedness presentation, contact the Grant County Office of Emergency Management at (575) 574-0065.
Additionally, the OEM is integrated with the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) that is required under the provision of the Superfund and Reauthorization Act of 1986 (SARA) Title III and as a part of the Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act (EPCRA).
