The Pinal County Office of Emergency Management is to provide planning, resource coordination, public outreach and recovery services to emergency response agencies and the public in order to minimize the loss of life and property during emergencies and disasters.

What is Emergency Management?

Pinal County Office of Emergency Management (PCOEM) was originally created by the Board of Supervisors as the Civil Defense Organization in November 1951.  On December 18, 1961, the Board of Supervisor adopted the first Basic Civil Defense Plan.  Over the years the name of the department changed several times to reflect its responsibilities.  Today, the Office of Emergency Management is responsible for coordination all hazard emergency efforts in preparedness, planning, response, recovery and mitigation for the unincorporated areas of the county.  The Civil Defense Plan has also changed over the years.  Today, the Office of Emergency Management is responsible for maintaining the County's Emergency Response Plan, the Long-Term Recovery Plan, The Multi-Hazard Multi-Jurisdiction Mitigation Plan, and the Local Emergency Response Committee Hazardous Materials Response Plan.

Pinal County Office of Emergency Management is comprised of four major components:

Preparedness
We provide a continuous cycle of planning, training, exercising, evaluation and make corrective actions to ensure effective coordination during incident response. 

Response
We issue warnings, coordinate resources for the mobilization of response personnel and equipment, to minimize injury and loss of life, thus reduce property damage and economic loss, restore essential community and public services.

Recovery
We provide a continuous cycle of planning, training, exercising, evaluation and make corrective actions to ensure effective coordination during incident response.

Mitigation
We reduce disaster impact by aggressively seeking alternative funding for mitigation projects before a disaster strikes.
