The mission of the Mahaska County Emergency Management Agency is to serve the citizens of the county through effective planning for natural, man-made, and technological disasters. Our goal is to save lives and to protect property through coordination of an integrated emergency management system with all emergency response organizations, support services and volunteers. We will be an advocate for greater community efforts to mitigate and prepare for potential emergencies. We will support efforts to train and exercise emergency responders in both the public and private sectors. We will manage and coordinate efforts toward a rapid recovery from disasters with an effective disaster assistance program.
This agency is committed to effective actions to prevent some disasters and to reduce the impact of those over which we have no control.
