Oldham County Emergency Management

The health and safety of Oldham County residents is the county government's #1 priority.

Oldham County Emergency Management is always ready and prepared to handle any emergency or disaster that may occur whether it is Severe Thunderstorms, Winter Storms, Flooding, or any other catastrophic event.


What is Emergency Management?

The Kentucky Revised Statutes mandates that the local Emergency Management Director bring together the local, state, and federal agencies and private sector resources needed to prepare for, mitigate against, respond to, and recover from major emergencies and disasters.

Emergency Management works with local, state, and federal agencies and private, non-profit organizations to continually update the county's Emergency Operations Plan (EOP).

Emergency Management supports training for all First Responders through drills and exercises.  Working with the county's Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC), Emergency Management develops special plans for the many facilities in our community which have dangerous chemicals classified by the U.S. EPA as "Extremely Hazardous Substances".
