Emergency & Disaster Response

The Office of Emergency Management is a division of the Goodhue County Sheriff’s Office. It is responsible for coordinating emergency or disaster response involving multiple agencies and the Goodhue County Addressing system. This division was created by Federal, and State Laws and County Board Resolution for the purpose of saving lives and protecting property during natural, man made, nuclear incidents, and National Security Events.


The Emergency Management Director acts as the liaison of the county to public and private organizations, the media, and all levels of local, state, and federal government to establish relationships, and pre-establish procedures, which will be used in a combined response to a disaster.
