Emergency Management


To provide La Paz 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.

Vision Statement:

The goal of the Office of Emergency Management is to educate the Citizens of La Paz County about their ongoing role in preparing for emergencies through education, community outreach and training.  Through creating an increased emphasis on disaster preparedness, the La Paz County Emergency Management looks forward to reinforcing interdepartmental communications and cooperation throughout our County.  By creating a community culture of preparedness and fostering partnerships with local public and private groups and businesses, it is our goal that La Paz County will work as community, with neighbor helping neighbor, when a disaster strikes.
