The objective of the Emergency Management Office is to work closely with local emergency responders to provide emergency assistance to Mount Vernon residents in the event of emergencies, natural and man-made disasters. Responders include, but not limited to Fire Department, American Red Cross, Social Services, area Churches, and other non-profit organizations.

The department is responsible for responding to all emergency requests, recruiting volunteers to assist in emergency situations and implementing directives from the New York State Emergency Management Office in Albany and Poughkeepsie; such as changes in the Emergency Management Program, and New York State laws.

Securing information and recording of events and documents in preparation for all required reports to FEMA and the State, and preparing and submitting Annual Performance Grant Applications and Participating Agreement to the New York State Emergency Management Office (NYSEMO) is also handled by this department.

Oversight of the city’s ambulance service, including communicating and providing information to the community, collection of quarterly documents and generating bid proposals for city ambulance coverage fall under the jurisdiction of the Emergency Management Office.
