Emergency Management

The Emergency Operations Center of the Baker County Sheriff’s Office is the central command for any man-made or natural disaster that occurs within county lines. Emergency Operations monitors a threat and distributes relief to those affected. When a threat cannot be immediately contained, the EOC analyzes the situation and reaches out to other agencies and organizations that can provide information, aid, or support during the crisis.

Emergency Operations is the Sheriff Department’s direct outreach to the community during storms, fires, floods, active shooter situations, and other potential disasters. The EOC is also responsible for the recovery of missing persons as well as monitoring the Project Lifesaver program. This program highlights people in the community with mental disorders that make them highly probable to wander away from their homes. Project Lifesaver ensures that they are outfitted with a beacon that pinpoints their location.

The EOC team remains on site for more than just the neutralizing of a threat; they stay and assist the community with search and rescue, clean up, and preventative measures. The Emergency Operations Center is also available to provide aid to other districts throughout the state should another community need help.
