Emergency Management and Communications Agency
Dennis O'Hara, Director
The Mahoning County Emergency Management Agency will provide for the health, safety and welfare of the residents of Mahoning County.
The Agency is dedicated to the four stages of Emergency Management:
Mitigation, Preparedness, Response & Recovery.
What We Do:
The Mahoning County EMA is responsible for the Mitigation, Preparedness, Response and Recovery actions for all major emergencies and disasters; such as floods, tornados, chemical spills (roadway, railway and fixed facilities), blizzards, droughts, and terrorism. We are the Lead County Agency as established by the Board of Commissioners for Homeland Security funding, training and operations. We also facilitate planning and resource deployment of County Departments and Agencies, including faith based organizations in times of crisis.
The Emergency Management and Communications Agency is funded with Federal and State monies along with grants and a special assessment tax on improved properties in Mahoning County for E-9-1-1 operations.
