About the Emergency Management


Harrison County’s Emergency Management is responsible for the coordination of the

The County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) is the operating arm of the Harrison County Emergency Management Commission. The Commission is made

up of the 10 mayors or their representative, the Sheriff or his/her representative, and
