Welcome to the Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency web site. Our mission is "to provide a safer future for Highland County by promoting, coordinating and providing mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery services before, during, and following any disaster." We are dedicated to protect lives, property and the environment within Highland County.

Please take the time to browse through the information on our site. Being prepared for emergencies or disasters is your responsibility and should not be taken lightly. Tips on how you can prepare yourself are offered throughout our site. Feel free to contact us with any questions you may encounter.
