Delaware County Emergency Management
and Emergency Information

In 1991, the Delaware County Board of Supervisors realized the need to establish a full time centralized office to handle the changing field of Emergency Management.  The Emergency Services Office was established initially with a staff of one and has evolved extensively over the past eighteen years to where it is today.

The Emergency Services Office has strived to fulfill its mission to improve the quality of the County's ability to prepare, respond, recover, and mitigate life changing events which affect its' nearly 50,000 residents.

Currently, the office is charged with managing a multitude of tasks regarding emergency management.  Some of the responsibilities include fire coordination, EMS coordination, NYS EMS course sponsorship, AHA Training Center, 911 oversight and policy development, county addressing program, and managing all aspects of the Delaware County Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan.  The Delaware County Department of Emergency Services is proud to work hand in hand with all of the fire and emergency medical responders which call Delaware County home.
