Elizabethton Carter County Emergency Management Agency’s mission is to support our citizens and first responders to ensure that as a county we work together to build, sustain, and improve our capability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate all hazards.
The Office of Emergency Management is tasked by TEMA and FEMA to coordinate and carry out a comprehensive plan to assist community efforts to prepare for, respond to, and recover from all types of man-made, technological, and natural disasters. This assistance is accomplished through planning, training, grant funding, and mitigation.
For ALL EMERGENCIES call 911, if not leave a message on the office answering machine (423) 542-1888 and someone will return your call as soon as possible.
