Renville County Emergency Management is a very important partner with the Sheriff's Office and other public safety agencies in Renville County when planning for natural and man-made disasters.  Although it is impossible to assemble specific plans for every type of emergency, having a general plan in place is of utmost importance in keeping our Renville County residents safe.

Renville County Emergency Management has developed a comprehensive emergency plan for Renville County, which includes:

Hazard Mitigation Phase  Efforts to eliminate or reduce the chance of occurrance or effects of a disaster. 
Preparedness Phase Planning how we would respond to a disaster. 
Response Phase The work to be done after an incident occurs where assistance is being provided. 
Recovery Phase The efforts beginning after the response phase until activities are back to normal.

The plan is effective in managing weather-related emergencies such as severe thunderstorms, tornados, flooding and blizzards.  Other types of emergencies covered under the plan include events like terrorism, hazardous materials spills and releases and contagious disease outbreaks.

Olivia FireIn the event of a disaster or other large-scale emergency in the county, Renville County Emergency Management assists responding agencies with managing the incident and providing support and additional tools and resources as they become available.

Emergency Operations Plan:

Renville County's Emergency Operations Plan, reviewed and updated annually, provides a summary of our emergency management system.  The plan identifies hazards, requirements and capabilities of our resources and provides a framework for coordinated response and recovery efforts.  Renville County's Emergency Operations Plan is reviewed by the Minnesota Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management every four (4) years.  Although the Emergency Operations Plan is not a public document, questions about the plan can be directed to Mike Hennen, Renville County Emergency Management Director.
