Emergency Management

The Bernalillo County Office of Homeland Security & Emergency Management (OHSEM) is a state-of-the-art emergency management system that coordinates effective use of county, state and federal resources to protect the lives and health of Bernalillo County citizens and visitors from the effects of natural or human-caused disasters, including acts of terrorism.

Emergency preparedness includes maintaining emergency operations plans, training county employees and citizens, and coordinating mutual aid resources. The department is on call around the clock for both small- and large-scale situations such as hazardous materials realeases, natural disasters, technological disasters, weapons of mass destruction incidents, and acts of terrorism.

The county’s Emergency Operations Center is where upper management gathers to determine the best course of action during significant incidents or times of disaster. County staff may also respond to the scene to serve as an interagency liaison, and coordinate state or federal agency support requests.

The county also can bring in a large collection of equipment, including communication tools, support vehicles, generators, and shelters. Additionally, county support personnel can, through mutual aid agreements and organizations, can coordinate logistics support, special task forces, and search and rescue and communication teams.
