Our Mission Statement
To provide the residents of Lincoln County with a comprehensive, integrated and coordinated public safety program through which risks are reduced, emergency services delivered and consequences of events managed to make our community a safe place to live, work and play. This accomplished through Mitigation, Planning, Response and Recovery.
The North Carolina General Statue 166A sets forth the authority and responsibility of the North Carolina Emergency Management Act. The objective of the Emergency Management Department is a four-phase approach to emergency situations:
The Lincoln County Emergency Management assists in developing plans for natural disasters such as floods, tornadoes or hurricanes, and manmade emergencies such as spills and nuclear power plant accidents.
Emergency Management is involved in response activities immediately before, during and directly after an emergency or disaster. We work with other departments and agencies to assists in improving levels of readiness.
Recovery activities are designed to restore public infrastructure and facilities, and to assist families with securing safe and secure housing. A recovery plan begins with a thorough assessment of damages to facilities, infrastructure, homes, businesses and agriculture.
Mitigation is the combined effort of local, state and federal government agencies which reduces or eliminates the problems associated with disasters. Most hazard mitigation techniques are applied where land use decisions are made, growth and development take place, and where hazards occur. The Lincoln County Emergency Management Department is responsible for protecting the people of Lincoln County from the effects of disasters, natural and manmade.
