The Wyoming County Office of Emergency Management (OEM) is responsible for the overall planning and response coordination for emergencies in the county. The OEM will ensure the county is prepared to respond to, and recover from, all natural and man-made emergencies for our citizens, employers and visitors. This is accomplished by:
Administration and presentation of fire and EMS training programs to countywide emergency services personnel
Comprehensive all hazards pre-disaster planning
Pre-disaster mitigation planning
Provide pre-disaster recovery information and assistance to the general public
Additionally, the OEM coordinates trainings for fire and EMS through the New York State Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Services Office of Fire prevention and Control, as well as the New York State Department of Health Bureau of Emergency Medical Services.
Wyoming County Office of Emergency Services is proud to be a National Weather Service Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador
The Weather-Ready Nation (WRN) Ambassador™ is an initiative of the U.S. Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), to strengthen partnerships with external organizations toward building community resilience in the face of increasing vulnerability to extreme weather and water events.
Building a Weather-Ready Nation™ requires more than government action alone. It requires innovative partnerships with other weather information providers (i.e., the Weather Enterprise), and with organizations across all segments of society for better community, business, and personal decision making.
WRN Ambassadors will serve as change agents and leaders in their community. They will inspire others to be better informed and prepared, thus helping to minimize, mitigate, or avoid the impacts of natural disasters.
