Disaster and Emergency Services
Mineral County Disaster and Emergency Services (DES) aims to build, sustain, and improve our ability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate hazards in Mineral County. Plans and training operations for the county are prepared and practiced with the Local Emergency Preparedness Committee (LEPC).
During emergencies, the DES Coordinator acts as the principle advisor to the chief executives on emergency operations and provides coordination and logistical support to the various government and non-government agencies performing emergency tasks and responsibilities. We recognize that comprehensive emergency management requires strong partnerships with public, private, and non-profit partners, as well as with individual citizens. Engaging the whole-community results in robust planning intended to minimize the impact to our populations affected by disasters.
Local Emergency Planning Committee
Mineral County’s LEPC meets once a month to discuss preparedness, response, and recovery.
The current Chair of the LEPC is Scott Dodd, email@example.com
