Emergency Management

Emergency Management is the combined efforts of local, state and federal governments to mitigate against, prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters, both natural and manmade. The local Emergency Management Office works to identify and analyze the hazards that may face Ashe County and develop contingency plans for each hazard. The plans are regularly tested, refined and tested again, all with the goal of  protecting or saving lives and property.

Ashe County uses a Community Notification System to help disseminate important or critical information.  Please use the link below to add email addresses or cell phone numbers.
