The Ocean City Office of Emergency Management is the Agency that coordinates with Federal, State, local and private resources throughout the city during times of disasters and emergencies. The mission of OCOEM does not end there - in fact OCOEM 's day to day operation is vital in preparing Ocean City for whatever challenge it may face.
As we all are aware, disasters for the most part take place at the local level. It is the intent of OCOEM to assist local government in being prepared for, responding to and recovering from disasters. At the OCOEM web page we are highlighting our intent by emphasizing the planning, training and exercise design functions available. We encourage you to tour our site as well as the hot links connected to our web site.
We are attempting to make emergency management at the municipal level more community based, to assist our local community identify potential risks, to enhance the response of assisting agencies and be a point of warning and coordination for all agencies within the city.
We welcome your thoughts and feedback. We will be attempting on a regular basis to keep this page updated with current and pertinent information. The field of Emergency Management is very unique.
We are asking for your assistance in maximizing Ocean City’s ability to prepare for and in some cases prevent potential disasters. Thank you for your interest and we look forward to hearing from you.
