Emergency Management

Our purpose is to protect South Dakotans and their property from the effects of natural, man made, and technological disasters.  To fulfill our charge, we recognize the four phases of emergency management:


Planning, training and exercising on how to respond to an emergency.

Coordinating activities and resources as the emergency is evolving.


Assisting the local jurisdiction to return to a normal lifestyle.

Ways to reduce or eliminate loss if the same event occurs again.
