Our Mission

Coordinate disaster response to meet the immediate health and safety needs of residents and visitors to Rochester, and protect the public from harmful effect of hazards

 

Help us reach our mission in three easy steps
  1. Be Informed - Get the latest updates from City of Rochester response agencies through your cell phone or by email or phone call.  If you live or work in Rochester, enroll in Rochester Alert.  Traveling or visiting? Receive Wireless Emergency Alerts via your enabled smartphone (all 2012 or later smartphones).
  2. Take Small Steps to Prepare - Do1Thing.com offers simple steps to prepare for whatever might happen.  This 12 month program breaks emergency preparation into small steps to get ready for the unthinkable.  The goal is to be ready by doing one small step each month.  By the end of one year, you will be better prepared for most anything.
  3. Own a Business or Work? - Resilience is a popular word in emergency management.  Will our community "bounce back" after a disaster?  Rochester already has a good foundation:  steady employment, top notch medical care, housing.  Still, we need everyone to be ready - even at work.  Do1Thing Business offers 12 steps to prepare your business or workplace from minor emergencies to major disasters. Go to Do 1 Thing Business to get started.

Flooding is the #1 natural hazard in the United States.  The flood protection program by the City of Rochester greatly reduces the threat of river & stream flooding for city residents.  Still, the National Flood Insurance Program and the City of Rochester Emergency Management Division wants residents to know that while homeowners insurance won't cover against flooding, you can protect your home and property by purchasing a flood insurance policy.  To purchase a flood insurance policy, contact a local insurance agent.
