Ron Sauntman – Emergency Services Manager

 

The Office of Emergency Management is within the Public Works Division. Yavapai County Office of Emergency Management’s principle responsibilities are in supporting the safety of our citizens and visitors, protection of our infrastructure, as well as our environmental and cultural resources, and assisting in community recovery efforts after an incident occurs.

This is accomplished through supporting response to “all hazard” incidents and special events and preparedness through planning, training, and exercise development.

Priority is given to the area of mitigation (lessening the effect) of hazards in order to achieve disaster resilient communities, capable of responding to and recovering from any incident. Achieving this is only accomplished in cooperation and coordination with our first responder organizations, community groups and leaders, Yavapai County leadership and organizational partners, State level leadership and stakeholders, and finally the relationships with our Federal and National supporting organizations.

Our work is focused on the following hazards:

  • Natural
  • Technological
  • Man-Made Threats

Yavapai County Office of Emergency Management sponsors and supports grant funded projects for the development of defensible space through wildland fire hazardous fuel mitigation. For more information on this topic see: https://yavapaifirewise.org/
