Porter County Emergency Management Agency

Who We Are

When disaster strikes, the community is clearly divided into only two entities; those who need help and those who can provide help. Emergency Management is a comprehensive, integrated program of mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery, for emergencies/disasters of any kind. No public or private entity is immune to disasters and no single segment of society can meet the complex needs of a major emergency or disaster on its own.


In its simplest form, the bottom line of Emergency Management is helping people help people!

What We Do
