The Ellis County Emergency Management Department coordinates all components of the Emergency Management System by working closely with local, state, and federal agencies, as well as volunteer and private organizations. 

Ellis County Emergency Management actively promotes protection of people, property, and the environment against natural, technological, vector, and civil societal hazards.

This Hazard Mitigation Plan is a guide for Ellis County citizens to prepare for possible natural disaster events by taking action to help mitigate the effects of potential hazards. The plan was prepared for Ellis County and participating local jurisdictions through the efforts of the Mitigation Planning Committee (MPC) in conjunction with the Kansas Division of Emergency Management.  Download a copy of the Ellis County Mitigation Plan (This document is over 600 pages and could take several minutes to download depending on your connection speed).
