Promote Emergency Management Principles across the whole community.
Make Chatham County Disaster Resilient.
Commitment, Professionalism, Dependability, Accountability
One of the most basic and fundamental responsibilities of government is to provide for the safety and welfare of its citizens before, during and after major emergencies and disasters. Therefore, an effective County-wide emergency Management Program should always remain as one of the highest priorities of elected and appointed officials at all levels. However individual citizens must also accept personal responsibility within their own means and abilities to be constantly aware of risk and always prepared to take protective actions when necessary for their own safety as well as that of their families, friends and property.
