Welcome to the Bradley County Office of Emergency Management (OEM)

Mission

Our purpose is to protect Bradley County Citizens and their property from the effects of natural, man-made, and technological disasters.

We will work together with all county departments and elected officials. The OEM Coordinator attends continuing education seminars throughout the year in order to stay abreast of changes to ensure responsible assistance and aid for the Citizens of Bradley County.

What is the role of the Bradley County Arkansas OEM?

OEM is charged with supporting the national system of emergency management. OEM provides for the national emergency management system by encouraging the development of comprehensive disaster preparedness and assistance plans, programs, capabilities, and organizations by the State and its local governments. OEM ensures that funding is located, acquired and provided to Bradley County law enforcement, fire fighters through grant funding. Hazardous Materials Program; Hazard Mitigation Program; Public Assistance Program; Emergency Grant Program; and other initiatives and programs, as allowed.

Because disasters often disrupt the normal functioning of governments and communities, and adversely affect individuals and families with great severity, special measures, designed to assist the efforts of the affected jurisdictions in expediting the rendering of aid, assistance, and emergency services, and the reconstruction and rehabilitation of devastated areas are necessary. OEM provides the organization necessary to facilitate the rapid acquisition and delivery of resources necessary to recover from "major" disasters.
