Emergency Notification System


Emergency Notification System Signup


Clark County has instituted an Emergency Notification System - an advanced communication service for emergency notifications. This system allows us to telephone, text, and email - all or targeted areas of the County in the event of emergency situations or critical community alerts. Examples include: evacuation notices, chemical spills, bio-terrorism alerts, boil alert notices, and missing child reports. Simply click on the Emergency Notification System logo above to submit your contact information to the notification database.


Overview

The Clark County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) is authorized by Ohio Revised Code (5502.271) to coordinate and administer countywide all-hazards emergency management and disaster preparedness functions for the County and its political subdivisions.

Because disasters can happen anywhere at any time, emergency management is both a system and a process working through four phases:

Phases of Emergency Management



Mitigation: Mitigation includes any activities that prevent an emergency, reduce the chance of an emergency happening, or reduce the damaging effects of unavoidable emergencies.

Preparedness: Preparedness includes plans or preparations made to save lives and to help response and rescue operations.

Response: Response includes actions taken to save lives and prevent further property damage in a disaster or emergency situation.

Recovery: Recovery includes actions taken to return to a normal or even safer situation following an emergency.

Resources

Disaster Assistance Resource Database

EMA maintains a database of pre-identified resources to assist first responders and community agencies in responding to and recovering from all kinds of emergencies and disasters. It provides EMA the ability to contact resources via established channels for expedited deployment to the incident.

If you would like more information or to become part of our resource pool, or if you have any questions after reading these documents, contact Ken Johnson, at e-mail or 937-521-2178.
