to Florence-Lauderdale EMA
Most emergencies or disasters
are handled at the local level without State or Federal
assistance and, although Florence-Lauderdale EMA is best
known for its assistance and preparedness programs,
emergency management is so much more.
An emergency management program
examines potential emergencies and disasters based on
the risks posed by likely hazards; develops and
implements programs aimed toward reducing the impact of
these events on the community; prepares for those risks
that cannot be eliminated; and prescribes the actions
required to deal with the consequences and the recovery
from those events when they occur.
