    Welcome to the Emergency Management Department

    Nate Wilson, Director
    Emergency Operations Center (EOC)

    The Emergency Management Department provides protection for the health, safety, and welfare of the citizens of the City of Ocean Springs during declared emergencies. The success of these emergency operations results from effective contingency planning, disaster event coordination of local and state agencies, all-hazards public education, disaster training, and exercises for emergency responders. We adhere to the four phases of Emergency Management: 1) Preparedness, 2) Response, 3) Recovery, and 4) Mitigation.

    Ocean Springs Emergency Bulletins
    In the event of an emergency situation within the city limits of Ocean Springs, an Emergency Bulletin system will be placed into operation on this site. Bulletins will be listed under a red banner heading at the top of the main web page.

    MEMA4KIDS is all about preparedness. We want to give students in grades K-8 the information, tools, strategies, and the peace of mind needed to be fully disaster prepared. After watching the videos and playing the online activities, students will be able to take the lead in showing their friends, family and community how to stay safe in an emergency. We’re helping kids become true-blue Preparedness Pals!
