Welcome

We hope that your visit here will help you better understand the various aspects of Emergency Management, and what it is we do to assist you as members of our community in the event of disaster.

Please take the time to familiarize yourself with the information we have provided you on this site. In the event of an actual emergency situation, your knowledge of what to do will be of great benefit to you and your family.

What We Do

St. Johns County Emergency Management is responsible for the Disaster Preparedness of our County and the Evacuation Assistance Program for our citizens who need assistance in the event of an evacuation.

St. Johns County Emergency Management was created by and operates under Florida Statute 252. This Program provides for the development and management of the County's Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (C.E.M.P.). In addition, this Program is responsible for Mitigation, Preparedness, Response and Recovery during any type of disaster that may occur in St. Johns County.

Emergency Management and Community Officials must be able to react promptly and effectively in the event of an incident, disaster, or major emergency. Often, there is no warning of emergencies such as with tornadoes, explosions, or major fires. The prevention of loss of life and property depends on rapid decision making.
