About Leon County Emergency Management

The Leon County Division of Emergency Management was established by Leon County Ordinance 93-16, with the responsibility of coordinating emergency management activities, services and programs within the county.

Management of the Leon County E9-1-1 Emergency Telephone System is also under the direction of the Leon County Division of Emergency Management. The E9-1-1 Emergency Telephone System was established by Leon County Ordinance 89-5.

On March 16, 1999 the Leon County Board of County Commissioners approved an Interlocal Agreement to transfer job functions and equipment of the Leon County Division of Emergency Management to the Leon County Sheriff’s Office. Under this agreement the Division reports to the Sheriff on a daily basis and to the Board of County Commissioners in times of an emergency.
