The Office of Emergency Management is responsible for work in the development, implementation, and management of county-wide disaster prevention, preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation.

The role of emergency management as a service is ever expanding in scope and increasing its commitment to the citizens of our county. Mahaska County Emergency Management will implement a comprehensive all-hazards emergency management program using sound risk management principles that will improve quality of life and minimize effects after a disaster through mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery activities.
