The Greeneville/Greene County Office of Emergency Management and Homeland Security’s Mission is to mitigate the potential effects of the various hazards that might impact the county, to prepare for the implementation of measures which will preserve life and minimize damage, to respond effectively to the needs of the citizens and local jurisdictions during emergencies, and to provide a recovery system to return the county and its communities to a normal status as soon as possible after such emergencies.
The Office of Emergency Management and Homeland Security is tasked by TEMA and FEMA to coordinate and carry out a comprehensive plan to assist community efforts to prepare for, respond to, and recover from all types of man-made, technological, and natural disasters. This assistance is accomplished through planning, training, grant funding, and mitigation.
