Emergency Management Agency

Agency Tasks

The Emergency Management Agency is the disaster staff to the County Commissioners during a major disaster. The Agency is also responsible to assist in developing mitigation plans to lesson the impact of disasters.

Mission

The Mission of the Bucks County Emergency Management Agency is to maintain an organization of government, industrial and volunteer agencies in a state of readiness and training to take immediate countermeasures to save lives, property, and alleviate human hardship and suffering under major disaster conditions.

We keep track of the chemical companies and the chemicals covered under federal SARA Title III Right to Know Act. We are the administrative branch and contact agency for the Local Emergency Planning Committee. Make contact with the office regarding questions about chemicals or chemical companies in Bucks County.

The Emergency Management Agency normal operation hours are Monday to Friday from 8 am to 4 pm. We develop and run disaster exercises to make sure everyone is prepared in the event of a real disaster. This agency goes to schools, and service groups to speak about emergency preparedness, for both natural and man made emergencies.
