EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT

EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT

The Emergency Management Division is responsible for emergency management throughout the county and the 9-1-1 Dispatch Center.

In the event of an emergency, or during high water flows, information on flood warnings can be found at the National Weather Service website, at http://www.wrh.noaa.gov/boi/. During times of high water flows, when evacuation is immanent, the Emergency Alert System will also be activated, and information will be provided on KSRV radio and Boise television stations.
