What is Emergency Management? Here's a quick video that explains what the Department of Emergency Management does.

Four Phases of Emergency Management


The plan is based on the Four Phases of Emergency Management:

  • Mitigation - efforts to reduce hazards or its impacts
  • Preparedness - efforts to prepare for a likely hazard
  • Response - actions taken to respond to an emergency or disaster
  • Recovery - actions taken to restore the community to pre-disaster condition

The Saint Paul Department of Emergency Management is continually planning and preparing for hazards that can impact the City. Remember, no two disasters are the same, the most effective way to protect you and your family is to be prepared. Get Prepared!

Emergency Management also provides public education and training, and is available to make presentations to civic and business groups on emergency preparedness.
