Emergency Management & Public Safety

The Office of Emergency Management & Public Safety is responsible for emergency preparedness, responses, and recovery efforts. Response activities include supporting 911 communication service, county ambulance service, and emergency planning surrounding infrastructure and community resilience. Sebastian County has an aggressive Training Program for the First Responders among the Rural Fire Departments. We currently have 78 First Responders among 17 Volunteer Fire Departments; 35 are EMTs and 6 are paramedics supporting EMS activities. Other activities include an active Search and Rescue Team that supports the state and region, along with an Amateur Radio Emergency Service and CERT program on a regional effort. Funding for the department is provided by an $18 fee added to personal property tax, approved by voters in 1986.
