Area Offices

PEMA Area Offices work as the field extension of PEMA, coordinating with commonwealth agencies, county and municipal government, volunteers and the private sector to assist in the prevention of, preparedness for, response to and recovery from all types of disasters. Area Offices provide on-site coordinated assistance to emergency management coordinators and commissioners in all 67 counties, other elected officials and their emergency management staffs during times of man-made or natural disasters. Each Area Office has a small staff of Emergency Management Specialists that can provide assistance and expertise to counties before, during and after a disaster as well as routine assistance to County Emergency Management Agencies for all types of planning, training, exercise design & development, hazardous material, and professional management skills development.
