Welcome to the Racine County Office of Emergency Management
Over 190,000 residents reside within Racine County’s 332 square miles. There is no greater responsibility for the Racine County Office of Emergency Management (RCOEM) than to protect the public and ensure that everyone is ready to respond to and recover from a natural or man-made emergency or disaster. Racine County is prone to both natural and man-made disasters and threats. The county is particularly vulnerable to the destructive affects of flooding, severe thunderstorms and tornadoes.
RCOEM is responsible for the coordination of Racine County’s emergency planning, training, response and recovery efforts in the midst of major disasters that require involvement by multiple county departments. RCOEM uses an all hazard approach to planning and response to major disasters. RCOEM also works with municipalities throughout Racine County, state and federal agencies and the private sector. RCOEM has a robust public outreach campaign which involves both educational and community preparedness activities.
