The Schuylkill County Emergency Management Agency (SCEMA) directs, controls, and coordinates response efforts on behalf of the County Commissioners during a major disaster. The Agency also assists both public and private entities in developing mitigation plans to lessen the impact of disasters, through hazardous identification and risk assessment. Annually our staff collaborates, develops, reviews and updates approximately 300 plans which are in place to address specific hazards within our county. These include plans for high-hazard dams, nuclear power plants, chemical facilities, day cares, personal care homes, skilled nursing facilities, schools, pandemic threat, mass care, mass casualty, mass fatality, drought, agricultural incidents, continuity of operations and transportation emergencies.
