The Park County Office of Emergency Management is responsible for coordinating and supporting our community’s readiness for emergencies and disasters. Emergency preparedness starts with personal responsibility and extends to our emergency services, businesses and civic organizations. Our collective efforts preserve life, protect property and build resilient communities.
The County Fire Warden administers the local open burning program (burn permits), coordinates the Fire Council, sits on the Montana South Central Zone Wildland Fire Committee, supports fire prevention and education, and is a liaison with local, state and federal fire agencies.
Emergency Management is a four phase process of preparing for emergencies and disasters at home, school, work and the great outdoors. Mitigation is identifying and minimizing risks. Preparendess is planning, training, and building local capabililites. Response is supporting our first responder's missions to help save lives and property. Recovery is the whole community effort of rebuilding and returning to "normal" following a significant event.
