Morgan County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) is dedicated to the service and protection of the citizens of Morgan County, Alabama.

We are here to serve Morgan County by implementing an All-Hazards Plan in which we envision an active resistance to the threats of nature to human life and property through publicly supported mitigation measures with proven results.

The municipalities and communities within Morgan County are committed to reducing the exposure and risk of natural hazards by activating all available resources through cooperative intergovernmental and private sector initiatives and augmenting public knowledge and awareness.


What Is Emergency Management?

Emergency Management is the coordination and integration of all activities necessary to build, sustain and improve the capabilities to prepare for, respond to, recover from, or mitigate against threatened or actual disasters or emergencies, regardless of cause. Furthermore, emergency management activities in response to an incident are a component of overall incident management and are aligned with parallel response processes associated with prevention and protection. The body of knowledge with respect to comprehensive emergency management includes the concept of emergency management "programs." These "programs" are comprised of functional areas including operations and procedures, hazard and risk identification, plans and procedures (strategic plans, operational plans, recovery plans), hazard mitigation, public information and public education, finance and administration, etc. etc.”
