Our Mission

To make Jefferson County more disaster-resilient through the coordination of all-hazards planning, exercise development and by promoting the adoption of best practices in all areas of its public safety system.

About the Commission

As established by the Home Rule Charter of Jefferson County (Article VI, Section 6.2), the Public Safety Commission works with the Jefferson County Office of Emergency Management to maintain the County’s All-Hazards Emergency Operations Plan (EOP). This document outlines how the County and its partners will come together to manage any type of emergency situation that would otherwise overwhelm the ability of individual departments to provide for the public’s safety through the use of day-to-day resources.

With the input of partners identified in the EOP, the Public Safety Commission works to ensure that the County’s plan provides a sufficient level of planning coordination and logistical support necessary for response to both natural and human-caused disasters.
