The Adams County Office of Emergency Management strives to maintain a high level of readiness to respond to natural and man-made disasters.

All departments, agencies, and private organizations work via an integrated emergency management program to plan for the mitigation of hazards, prepare for emergencies, and assist the County in returning to pre-disaster conditions.


The jurisdictions of Adams County, Corning, Prescott, Nodaway, Southwest Valley Schools, and CHI Health Mercy Hospital are starting the process of updating our Multi-hazard Mitigation Plan. Below are to links to surveys created to gain information and perspectives of members of the Adams County community and partners who provide service in Adams County. The first survey is designed to facilitate a strong planning process so that the hazard mitigation plan is useful to the county and jurisdictions in the county and so that it meets State and FEMA requirements. The topic for the second survey is the types of actions commonly done to address hazards such as the ones in the first survey. You do not need to have extensive knowledge about hazard and disasters to participate. We value a large number of responses. Please thoughtfully answer all the questions in the surveys. It should take no more than 15 minutes to complete each survey.
