Welcome to the Office of Emergency Management

The Office of Emergency Management (OEM), which coordinates the City's processes of mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery from man-made and natural disasters, is based in the Alexandria Fire Department. Our Office maintains the City's Emergency Operations Center, which is used by City officials and related agencies to provide a coordinated response to major emergencies and disasters. OEM also maintains the City's Emergency Operations Plan, which identifies the responsibilities of all local departments and agencies. OEM staff members serve as the City's liaisons with the Virginia Department of Emergency Management and the Federal Emergency Management Agency, as well as staff support to Alexandria's Local Emergency Planning Committee.
