Welcome to the Laurens County SC Emergency Management Website! We hope your visit is educational and informative.
Emergency Management is the combined efforts of local, state and federal governments to protect citizens from the effects of disasters, both natural and man-made. Our local office works to identify and analyze the hazards that may face Laurens County and develop contingency plans for each hazard. The plans are regularly tested, refined and tested again; all with the goat of protecting or saving lives and property.
