Management & Homeland Security (EMA)

The Cleveland-Bradley County Office of Emergency Management & Homeland Security is an independent department of the Bradley County Government, responsible for emergency management activities in Bradley County, and the cities of Cleveland and Charleston, reporting to the Bradley County Mayor.

Our Mission

The mission of the Cleveland-Bradley County Office of Emergency Management & Homeland Security is to provide the highest level of emergency preparedness to the citizens of Cleveland and Bradley County as they face new challenges in the 21st century. Working as inter-agency coordinators in partnership with local, state, federal, and private entities, we seek to provide comprehensive emergency response, hazard planning, and disaster mitigation to Cleveland and Bradley County.

Disasters can strike at anytime and anywhere. They may take many forms, whether a hurricane, a tornado, a flood, a fire or a hazardous spill, an act of nature, or an act of terrorism. They may build over days or weeks, or may happen without any warning. Every year, millions of Americans face disasters and their terrifying consequences. Quite often, Bradley County residents have become victims of these events. Our hope is that you will find this site useful in finding information that can help prepare you and your family on the types of emergencies and hazards that our community may face. Please feel free to email or call our office at (423) 728-7289 if you have questions concerning these topics, and our staff will be happy assist you.
