Mission Statement

The City of Dyersburg through the combined efforts of its many departments seeks to enhance the quality of life and protect the citizens of Dyersburg by providing professional and progressive Emergency Awareness - Ready Dyersburg Services in the event of a catastrophic incident within the City of Dyersburg.  While providing these services, we are committed to personnel safety by promoting and supporting the force that makes this task successful. Dyersburg Office of Emergency Awareness - Ready Dyersburg will provide citywide Emergency Awareness - Ready Dyersburg program leadership, continuity, and direction to enable the City of Dyersburg and its partners to respond to, recover from, and mitigate the impact of natural, manmade, or technological disasters upon its people or property.

About Dyersburg Emergency Awareness - Ready Dyersburg Agency

The Board of Mayor and Aldermen established the Dyersburg Office of Emergency Awareness - Ready Dyersburg on October 29, 2002 to improve the direction and control of local emergency preparations, response and recovery activities and to ensure that the needs of all the citizens of Dyersburg are met in the event of a local emergency.

The department coordinates the preparedness, planning, training and recovery activities of all City departments. Additionally, it serves as a liaison with other municipalities, state and federal agencies, and the private sector; and performs related public education and community preparedness activities.

Statement from the Manager

One of the foremost responsibilities of leaders, at all levels, is to establish a Vision for their organization, to paint a picture of what success looks like. This is vitally important in times of great change, like now.

I am committed to ensuring that Dyersburg Office of Emergency Awareness - Ready Dyersburg  for the City of Dyersburg is poised and ready to perform the missions that await us in the 21st century.

Dyersburg OEM's job is to lead the City in developing and maintaining a citywide Emergency Awareness - Ready Dyersburg system that helps people protect themselves, their families, homes and businesses from all hazards. More specifically, Dyersburg EMA:

  • Builds preparedness by ensuring adequate plans are in place for the continuation of essential government functions during any emergency. A serious disruption of government services could severely hinder Emergency Awareness - Ready Dyersburg assistance to the people.
  • Coordinates the local response when disasters exceed our capabilities, and assists communities to recover.

In all of its activities, Dyersburg OEM works in close consultation with partners in Federal, State and local governments, business and industry, the American Red Cross and other volunteer and non-profit organizations.
