Emergency Management Operations

EMO Graphic

The Emergency Management Operations or commonly referred as EOC is a multi-functional agency whose primary duty is to prepare, respond and recover from several types of natural, man-made and technological disasters that may occur in Rankin County. These disasters include severe weather emergencies such as large thunderstorms, tornadoes, floods, large fires and hazardous materials HAZMAT incidents. We also serve as a support agency for other county departments as well as assisting municipalities as needed. We are the liaison agency between the cities and county to the State of Mississippi and the Federal Government in case of a major disaster.

On a daily basis, our E-911 Division provides addresses to the un-incorporated areas of the county in order to maintain a database for the 911 system. When someone dials 911, one of the six PSAPS (public safety answering points) within our county receives the call with this address data on a screen to facilitate the dispatch of required assistance. With this information available, the dispatcher may still send help to a location even if the caller is unable to speak or the connection is lost. Calls are automatically routed to the jurisdiction in which the calls originate. This saves valuable time for the caller to get help.

The Emergency Operations Center (EOC) works closely with radio and TV media to inform the public, warn of impending or actual disasters, weather, and advise citizens of action to take should emergencies occur.
