Ramsey County Emergency Management and Homeland Security (RCEMHS) is charged with coordinating the emergency preparedness and homeland security efforts of the county. In addition to planning and educating, RCEMHS also provide assistance to local jurisdictions and county agencies before, during and after disaster strikes. EMHS works closely with county, local and state law enforcement, and cooperatively with neighboring jurisdictions to enhance homeland security and better prepare for and respond to incidents ranging from tornadoes to terrorism
Homeland Security involves working with all aspects of public safety - from the federal level to working with individual citizens - to ensure the most comprehensive and coordinated approach to protection of the public safety. The division works with many agencies and jurisdictions to coordinate information, training and equipment needed for protecting the county and the nation from acts of terrorism. In the awful event that such an act is perpetrated upon us, RCEMHS staff will work with these agencies and jurisdictions to meet the problem quickly, mitigate its effect, inform the public, and reduce the chances that such an event can happen again.
Ramsey County Emergency Services (RCES) unit members are uniformed volunteers that provide emergency communications, coordination of resources, planning and labor. RCES supports local and neighboring community agencies such as; Fire, Ambulance, Sheriff, and Police Departments with coordination, logistics, communication and staging at emergency scenes
