Emergency Management

The Office of Emergency Management (OEM) assists Williamson County in preparing for, responding to, and recovering from disasters.  The OEM works year-round with City Departments, regional emergency management and public safety officials, and elected officials to develop a plan to lessen the impact of disasters on County residents. OEM Staff comes from various backgrounds and specializations, and work together in the four areas of emergency management: preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation.

During a disaster, please stay tuned to local radio or television stations for up to date information regarding appropriate safety measures. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to learn about preparedness and what the OEM is doing.

Public Invited to Participate in Emergency Management Planning Surveys

A partnership of local governments and other stakeholders in Williamson County are working together to amend the current 2015 Williamson County Hazard Mitigation Plan and create a new Community Flood Protection Plan. Local emergency managers want to know how prepared the community is for natural disasters. Residents, businesses, and interested citizens can provide input through two online surveys available on this website. 

The surveys are a component of creating good emergency management plans. In order to identify and plan for future flooding and other natural disasters, community input is needed. These questionnaires have been designed to help gauge the level of knowledge local residents already have about flooding and other natural disasters and to identify areas vulnerable to natural disasters. The information provided will help coordinate activities to reduce the risk of injury or property damage in the future.

The surveys should take less than five minutes each to complete and are anonymous. To take the surveys, use these links:
