EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY
"Be Prepared, Keep Informed, Get Involved"
About Columbia County EMA
Columbia County EMA has two full time employees and is the principle emergency management coordinating entity for thirty-three municipalities.
Like any community Columbia County is potentially vulnerable to a variety of natural and man caused emergencies with flash flooding and Susquehanna River flooding at the top of the list.
Columbia County is also a risk county of the Susquehanna Steam Electric Station and a member of the East Central PA Counter-Terrorism Task Force. With 59 Tier II reporting facilities, Interstate 80 and two railroads dissecting the county we are also prepared to respond to a variety of hazardous materials incidents.
Columbia County EMA’s motto is “Informed people make better decisions’" so community outreach is the foundation of our emergency management program.
If a serious problem arises are you willing to be part of the solution? Get involved, help make Columbia County more disaster ready!
