  EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT

 

 

 

 

 
 

 

 

DISASTER

Disaster strikes anytime and anywhere. It takes many forms -- a hurricane, a tornado, a flood, a fire or a hazardous spill, an act of nature or an act of terrorism. It builds over days or weeks, or hits suddenly, without warning. Every year, millions of Americans face disaster, and its terrifying consequences. Quite often, Stafford County residents become affected by these events.  The Emergency Management Division is located within the Technical Services Branch of Stafford County Fire & Rescue, reporting to the Board of Supervisors through the County Administrator.

  • Effective and orderly governmental control and coordination of emergency operations in emergencies within the scope of Virginia Statutes; 
  • Develops and maintains the County's Comprehensive Emergency Operations Plan providing emergency management planning for the entire county;

Teaching people how to get through a disaster

Helping equip local first responders

Now is the time to take the necessary precautions to safeguard you and your family. SCFR recommends creating a disaster supplies kit, including a three-to-seven-day supply of bottled water and non-perishable food for each family member, extra clothing and bedding, personal hygiene items, medicines, a flashlight, portable radio and batteries. Most importantly, have a battery-powered, tone-activated NOAA Weather Radio to monitor severe weather forecasts and warnings.
