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:

 

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.

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