The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
CEMA's mission is to provide a comprehensive and integrated emergency management program to prepare the whole community for major emergencies and disasters
VISION To build a safe and disaster resilient future for our community through effective public and private relationships. VALUES Commitment, Professionalism, Dependability, Accountability One of the most basic and fundamental responsibilities of government is to provide for the safety and welfare of its citizens before, during and after major emergencies and disasters. Therefore, an effective County-wide emergency Management Program should always remain as one of the highest priorities of elected and appointed officials at all levels. However individual citizens must also accept personal responsibility within their own means and abilities to be constantly aware of risk and always prepared to take protective actions when necessary for their own safety as well as that of their families, friends and property.
