In The Spotlight at Brevard County Emergency Management

Brevard Prepares - Local Mitigation Strategy 2015 Draft

The Draft 2015 Local Mitigation Strategy (LMS) will be available for public comment online and at the Brevard County Emergency Operations Center upon request from December 15, 2014 through January 5, 2015.   For interested parties, a presentation on the LMS will be held on December 17 from 10 to 11 a.m. at the Brevard County Emergency Operations Center located at 1746 Cedar Street in Rockledge, Florida.  To download the Draft LMS please click "here."

  • In 1998, public and private sector interests of Brevard County joined together as Brevard Prepares to pre-identify critical facilities, and projects and programs that could be done to help reduce the impacts of future disasters. The projects and programs are called "mitigation initiatives."
  • Every 5 years the State reviews and approves the LMS using state and federal guidance documents.
  • This spotlight is part of the plan, inviting the public to participate and comment in the review process.
  • Currently the Brevard Prepares Steering Committee hears new initiative applications and guides the local mitigation process on an annual basis.
  • Please click "here" to send your comments on the Draft LMS to this Office. 

Together we can build a disaster resistant community.

Disasters

Disaster strikes anytime and anywhere. It takes many forms -- a hurricane, a tornado, a flood, a fire or a hazardous spill, an act of nature or an act of terrorism. It builds over days or weeks, or hits suddenly, without warning. Every year, millions of Americans face disaster, and its terrifying consequences. Quite often, Brevard County residents become affected by these events.
The Emergency Management Office is an independent office of the county government, reporting to the Board of County Commissioners through the County Manager. 


Mission  

To provide Brevard County residents, businesses and industries, non-profit organizations, and local governments the education and support necessary to reduce the loss of life and human suffering; to minimize property damage; and to protect environmental sensitive areas from all types of disasters through a comprehensive, risk-based, all-hazard emergency management program.
