Department Responsibilities

The Department of Emergency Management plans for and responds to both natural and man-made disasters. These range from floods and hurricanes to incidents involving hazardous materials or nuclear power. The department prepares and implements the Pasco County Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan, and routinely conducts extensive exercises to test county emergency response capabilities.


Pasco County Emergency Management staff members provide technical assistance as they prepare emergency plans and procedures. They also conduct emergency operations training for local governmental agencies.      
Disaster Response

After a disaster, the department conducts damage assessment surveys and advises our citizens on whether there are emergency or federal relief funds. The department maintains a primary Emergency Operations Center (EOC) in New Port Richey, Florida. The EOC serves as the communications and command center for reporting emergencies and coordinating local response activities.
