The Emergency Management Division operates throughout the year to help ensure the safety and well-being for the citizens of Daytona Beach. Personnel from the Fire Department and Police Department manage the city’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC), which is located within the Police Department headquarters. The EOC is activated during special events, city emergencies and other critical situations.
Each member of the Emergency Management Team is specially trained to deal with the various types of situations that our city may encounter, such as the hurricanes in 2004 or the flooding in 2009. Emergency Management personnel work closely with local, county, state and federal agencies such as FEMA and the Department of Homeland Security, continuously training and working together to improve their skills and knowledge.
During times of emergencies, it is recommended for the public to monitor local television and radio for important information and announcements. The latest information is promptly delivered to the media and broadcast to the public as soon as possible.
