Adair & Guthrie County’s Emergency Management Agency is responsible for the planning and coordination of the emergency response activities to prepare, respond and recover from all natural or man-made disasters in Adair County. The Agency manages the County Emergency Operations Center, which is the central coordination facility for all disasters. Emergency Management coordinates emergency response between Law Enforcement, Fire Departments, Hazardous Material Response Team, Hospital, Health and Human Services Agencies and Emergency Medical Services as well as serving as the liaison with Red Cross, Salvation Army, State and Federal Agencies.
