    The Columbiana County Emergency Management Agency is a public service
    agency where disaster preparedness and public safety related emergency
    management functions are coordinated to serve and protect the citizens of
    Columbiana County.

    Authorized by Ohio Revised Code, Columbiana County EMA is tasked as the
    county focal point for planning, coordination and administration of the
    countywide "All Hazards" emergency management and disaster preparedness
    program.  Columbiana County is concerned with all natural, manmade and
    technological hazards, including international and domestic acts of terrorism
    and Homeland Security functions.  Within our planning standards we define
    Columbiana County's Emergency Management process as, "Whereas
    preparedness to cope with the effects of a disaster includes many diverse
    but interrelated elements which must be woven into an integrated emergency
    management system involving all departments of local government and
    private support agencies, plus the individual citizen."

    There are multiple programs within Emergency Management that are performed.  
    These include, but are not limited to, mitigation, preparedness, response, grants
    administration, hazard mitigation planning, homeland security planning, disaster
    recovery, public notification and warning systems, and hazardous materials
    planning.

    To meet these responsibilities, the Columbiana County EMA has adopted this
    mission statement:

    "The goals to be achieved are to save lives and protect property by
    developing programs and emergency operational capabilities that address
    mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery for natural, technological,
    civil or attack-related emergencies."
