Monroe County Emergency Management Minimize


Emergency Management means the preparation for and the coordination of all emergency functions other than functions for which military forces or other federal agencies are primarily responsible, to prevent, minimize and repair injury and damage resulting from disasters.

For the entire Indiana Code chapter on emergency management and the directives state legislature lays out for the formation and regulation of an emergency management agency at the county level, go to  

Monroe County Alert

Get alerted about emergencies and other important community news by signing up for our Emergency Alert Program, called Monroe County Alert. This system enables us to provide you with critical information quickly in a variety of situations, such as severe weather, unexpected road closures, missing persons and evacuations of buildings or neighborhoods.

 You will receive time-sensitive messages wherever you specify, such as your home, mobile or business phones, email address, text messages and more. You pick where, you pick how.
