Emergency Management

The goal of Emergency Management is to aid the community in mitigating, preparing for, responding to, recovering from natural and man-made emergencies and disasters that could affect the citizens, businesses, and visitors of the City of Roanoke.

Emergency Management works with local, state, and federal government partners, as well as non-governmental organizations to achieve this goal. Emergency Management maintains the city’s Emergency Operations Center, is an active partner with the Roanoke Valley Local Emergency Planning Committee and participates in regular exercises to test and continuously revise the city’s Emergency Operations Plan to insure a state of constant readiness.
