The City of Weatherford's Office of Emergency Management (OEM) is charged with coordinating the City of Weatherford's emergency management program. This is accomplished by developing emergency plans, offering disaster preparedness training, conducting drills and exercises, and participating in public education programs. The program operates through the four phases of emergency management in an all hazards approach in order to properly prepare for disasters, coordinate response efforts, provide timely recovery assistance, and implement projects to try to prevent and/or lessen the impacts of disasters. OEM works with numerous public, private, and nonprofit agencies in order to help ensure the City of Weatherford is a safe place to live, work, and visit.
