Emergency Management is a comprehensive effort coordinating a wide range of public safety and awareness programs to ensure that a high level of preparedness, mitigation, response and recovery will be maintained for all known hazards. Continuous assessment, planning, training and exercising is undertaken involving public agencies and the public sector. In doing this, a partnership with a good working relationship is formed with local emergency response agencies, such as fire, law enforcement, emergency medical services, public health, public works, and volunteer agencies. These joint events bring about an awareness of each other's capabilities and limitations.
