The County Judge's Division of Emergency Services is committed to maintaining the safety and welfare of the County’s residents through preparation, planning, mitigation, and response.

The division includes two sections - Emergency Management and the Fire Marshal’s Office - that interrelate on a daily basis.

Types of emergencies that we respond to are fires, hurricanes and other natural disasters or severe weather incidents, acts of terrorism, pandemic flu and other public health threats and whatever incidents that may arise calling for our expertise in the area of managing public response to an emergency.

Our team coordinates with area law enforcement, fire departments,public and private emergency response entities, hospitals, nursinghomes, home health agencies, local, state and federal governments,councils of government and numerous non-profits.

The Fire Marshal's Office issues burn permits, responds to firesthroughout the county and conducts site visits and arsoninvestigations.
