Emergency Management works within a living circle, which consists of Mitigation, Planning, Response, and Recovery operations. All of these actions are going on throughout the year as well as during an emergency situation. The primary focus of operations during an emergency will change with seasonal weather conditions as warranted in the situational reports. The general public can be a valuable asset in any situation and are to monitor the conditions around them and report things as they happen. During any emergency situation it is better that all citizens monitor local radio or media stations from the safety of their home instead of going to the scene where they could be placing themselves in harms way.
