Emergency Manager: Chris Crowley 435.333.1532
Emergency management coordinates all functions of the public and private sector to prepare for and respond effectively to natural or man-made emergency conditions. Summit County communities are at seasonal risk of emergency events from wildfires, flooding, severe winter storms, drought and animal and human health epidemics. With two major interstate highways and a railroad crossing the County, we are also subject to hazardous materials spills. Emergency management conducts detailed risk assessments of those hazards and assists our public and private partners to prepare for and addresses those hazards. We do this through the development and exercise of emergency response and communications plan, policies and practices.
