EMD has four divisions that combine traditional emergency management, public health disaster management and emergency medical services into a single, comprehensive, all hazards department. We're not just new in Riverside County. We're first of its kind in the industry of emergency management.
Administration, Business and Finance Division
Administration manages, drives and leads the department forward with strategic planning and policy making. The Business and Finance Unit maintains our sound business functions and prudent financial management by closely monitoring 17 different grant allocations from the state and federal government, as well as department spending.
The Preparedness Division develops and maintains the Emergency Operations Plan and more than 19 separate annexes. In addition, Preparedness conducts exercises and training sessions, as well as manages a dynamic volunteer program.
The Operations Division ensures the ability to respond to and support all-risk events regardless of size. Through building and sustaining Emergency Operations Centers, maintaining a network of field responders, and engaging partner organizations, Operations creates a constant state of readiness.
Riverside County Emergency Medical Services Agency
The Riverside County Emergency Medical Services Agency (REMSA) regulates, supports, monitors and manages both emergency and non-emergency response of the pre-hospital care within Riverside County. For more information on REMSA, click here.
