The Saline County Office of Emergency Management is charged with the overall mission of protecting Saline County, Arkansas citizens and their property from the effects of natural, manmade, and technological disasters. To fulfill this mission, the office recognizes and utilizes the four phases of emergency management: Preparedness (planning, training, and exercising on how to respond to an emergency); Response (coordinating activities and resources as the emergency is evolving); Recovery (assisting the local jurisdiction to return to a normal lifestyle); and Mitigation (ways to reduce or eliminate loss if the same event occurs again).
During times of severe emergencies or disasters the office is responsible for activating and operating the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) which is located in the Office of Emergency Management building.
The Office of Emergency Management continually develops and revises Saline County's Emergency Operations Plan to address the potential threats to the County. We use what is called an "all hazards" approach to emergency planning. This allows us to inventory and maintain the necessary resources to best meet the needs of any challenge we are faced with.
