CITY OF McLENDON CHISHOLM
OFFICE OF EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT
The Office of Emergency Mangement is dedicated to the safety and welfare of our citizens through the preservation of life, health and property.
ABOUT THE OEM
The Office of Emergency Management [OEM] was established via City Ordinance (Sec. 1.05) on April 12, 1993, to establish measures that will mitigate actual or potential major hazards which threaten life and property within the city if a disaster were to occur in the community.
In cooperation with the County, the OEM develops an emergency management plan for the city council along with any and all mutual aid plans and agreements which are deemed essential for the implementation of such emergency management plan.
State law establishes the Mayor as Director of the OEM, who has the authority to declare a state of disaster. Fire Chief Simmons is the Emergency Management Coordinator.
