Mission Statement

To reduce loss of life, injury, property damage, environmental impact and economic loss due to disaster, through fostering communication, cooperation, collaboration and coordination among community, faith-based, non-profit, private and public organizations active in one or more phases of emergency management.

Description

BRACE serves a key coordinative role with our Partners during major emergencies. BRACE is assigned a seat at the Escambia County Emergency Operations Center (EOC), allowing the organization to serve as a link with partner organizations throughout the community during an emergency, ensuring coordination of effort, minimizing duplication, and addressing gaps in service.

The County’s Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan indicates: "BRACE will coordinate social and support services utilizing local, donated and purchased resources from its membership and the community abroad to meet individual, unmet needs and manage and maintain social service casework where appropriate."

BRACE is also the sponsoring organization for the CERT program.
