Preparedness is the key by which local governments can be better positioned to fulfill their obligation to respond to disasters in a timely and effective manner, to protect lives, and to preserve property. Equally important is that you, as a citizen, can take steps to help ensure the health and safety of yourself and your family. The primary role of the Division of Emergency Management is to work daily at preparing both our Town and our citizens to meet these challenges through the administration of a comprehensive, all-hazard program of planning, training, exercising and public education.

As we seek to minimize the impacts of emergencies and disasters on the people, property, environment, and economy of the Town of Hilton Head Island, a partnership between government and the community is vital. Together, we can prevail.
