What We Do

Our goal is to promote a safer, less vulnerable county. We lead efforts to reduce, prepare for, respond to, and recover from danger. Danger includes natural disasters, acts of terrorism, and human-caused and technological disasters. We coordinate all efforts to build, improve and sustain the means to achieve this goal.

We also organize public safety support at large events in Allen County. These events include annual festivals, special visitor appearances, military air shows, and concerts.
