Emergency Services Plans

The Minnesota Emergency Services prepares for emergency events by creating emergency plans. These plans include detailed procedures in the case of different emergencies, including the roles and responsibilities of Moorhead, Minnesota state, and federal agencies. In the immediate period before a known emergency, such as a developing hurricane, Emergency Services coordinates with Clay County Public Safety agencies, Clay County Public Works agencies, Moorhead Utilities, and hospitals to minimize the emergency's impact and rapidly respond to the emergency.

Emergency Response Services in Moorhead, MN

In the case of a Moorhead emergency, Emergency Services coordinates response services through an Emergency Operations Center (EOC). An EOC has a communications network, an uninterruptible power supply, and resources to continuously manage and respond to the emergency. Emergency Services may activate the EOC before the emergency, in the case of known events, or immediately after the emergency, for events such as an earthquake. The EOC remains activated throughout the recovery period, and it can also be used during non-emergencies for Moorhead disaster planning and emergency preparedness training.

In addition to coordinating emergency responses, the Minnesota Emergency Services provides emergency preparedness resources for residents of Moorhead. These include resources on natural disasters, including hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, fires, and floods.
