Office of Emergency Management & Homeland Security & 911

The mission of the Office of Emergency Management & Homeland Security/ Local Emergency Planning Committee (OEM/LEPC) is to protect the lives and property of citizens in the City of Bridgeport. This is done by providing 24-hour emergency assistance by mobilizing and deploying personnel and resources, updating emergency operations plans and strategies, training emergency personnel, managing the emergency operations system, and warning and informing the public of emergencies and disasters.


Over the last 30 years the Office of Emergency Management & Homeland Security (OEMHS) as mandated by federal, state and local law has evolved from civil defense, which had the primary responsibility for the protection of the civil population in the event of war.
