The Office of Emergency Management (OEM) is under the direction of the Weld County Commissioners with Roy Rudisill as director. OEM is supported by three full-time personnel. OEM plans for response to emergencies and disasters, and coordinates the activities of the county during actual events. Each level of government is responsible to handle their own emergency until the emergency exceeds its capabilities or resources. The county emergency plan is ready to activate at a moment’s notice from any incorporated municipality in the county.
The county emergency plan is also ready for activation in the event the emergency directly effects those living in the county. While assistance may be available it is the expectation of each and every citizen to be able to take care of themselves for the first 72 hours. State law does not allow for public assistance to provide a monetary subsidiary directly to citizens.
The office of emergency management frequently provides talks and classes on how to prepare oneself for an emergency. Roy Rudisill may be contacted if you are interested in having them speak to your group.
THE MISSION of the Weld County Office of Emergency Management is to support Weld County and its citizens in Preparedness, Prevention, Mitigation, Response, and Recovery using an All-Hazards approach, and to develop and sustain broad and sincere relationships among individuals and organization to encourage trust, advocate a team atmosphere, build consensus, and facilitate communication
