The role of Emergency Management is to utilize a ‘whole community’ approach to lessen the impact of natural or man-made disasters and large-scale emergencies on Eau Claire County Citizens. We follow the internationally recognized cycle for Emergency Management: Preparedness, Response, Recovery, and Mitigation.
Preparedness is the process of preparing for a disaster or major incidents. You can be involved in many of our preparedness activities which include:
Signing up for emergency alerts. Signing up is easy and free! Follow the link below to get started.
Stop the bleed classes are free of charge and designed to help people learn how to stop bleeding in traumatic injuries. Check in periodically or follow us on social media for future Stop the Bleed class dates!
Skywarn Weather Spotter Trainings are conducted by the local National Weather Service office. These classes are fun, educational, and free of charge. This training will help you to be able to identify different types of severe weather and become more weather aware. Check in early next year for next year's class dates!

Mitigation is the process of reducing the impact disasters will have on our community. In 2019, Eau Claire County updated the county All Hazards Mitigation Plan.
Response is the process of responding to an incident, regardless of size. Eau Claire County Emergency Management has a 24-Hour on call Duty Officer able to respond to any incident in the County.
Recovery is the process of rebuilding after a major incident. For more information, visit:
