The department supports the Joint Dispatch Center (JDC) in directing response agencies during a disaster or emergency; develops and maintains emergency operations procedures; distributes information about hazards relevant to Manitowoc County; oversees evacuation of the population in an emergency; and evaluates emergency management capabilities through regular tests, drills and exercises and modifies emergency plans accordingly.
The department is directed by Nancy H. Crowley RN, WCEM and the Program Manager is Mary Herzog.
One of the services they provide to the residents of Manitowoc County is Enhanced 9-1-1, which supplies dispatchers with the name, address, and emergency service provider(s) for each particular address; thereby making the response to each incident quicker and more efficient. They also have the capability for wireless 9-1-1, which means a person calling with a cellular telephone and in line of sight of the satellites, can be located on a map, to identify their location if they are not sure where they are.
The department is directed by Nancy H. Crowley RN, WCEM.
