The health & safety of Oldham County residents is our #1 priority. Oldham County Emergency Management is always ready and prepared to handle any emergency or disaster that may occur whether it is Severe Thunderstorms, Winter Storms, Flooding or any other catastrophic event.

 

What is Emergency Management?

The Kentucky Revised Statutes mandates that the local Emergency Management Director bring together the local, state and federal agencies and private sector resources needed to prepare for, mitigate against, respond to, and recover from major emergencies and disasters.

 

We work with local, state, and federal agencies and private, non-profit organizations to constantly update our county Emergency Operations Plan (EOP).

 

We help the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) develop special plans for the many facilities in our community which have dangerous chemicals classified by the U.S. EPA as "Extremely Hazardous Substances".

We test and exercise the local plan through drills and exercises. We train responders and support agencies to be ready for all types of emergencies.
