Emergency Management

The Emergency Management Division develops plans and procedures that provide for an effective response to all types of threats facing the Town of Hilton Head Island. By developing and then exercising the All-Hazards Plans, we strive to minimize the impacts of an emergency or disaster on our citizens, visitors, property, the environment, and the Town's economy.

The Emergency Management Division works closely with many public and private sector partners to ensure we are able to coordinate our actions and needs during an emergency or disaster. This coordination requires planning and close relationships with local, state, and federal partners.

  • Our most critical partner is the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office's Division of Emergency Management.
  • Our working relationship assists us in acquiring the resources and support needed to manage events that impact the Town.

For resources the Town does not readily have available, the Emergency Management Division has Memoranda of Understandings (MOUs) in place to strengthen the Town's response capabilities by ensuring we have the necessary resources available to us to respond and recover after a human caused or natural disaster.
