Emergency Management

About the Emergency Management Office: Perry County, Tennessee


Perry County’s emergency needs are served by a dedicated team of volunteers and professionals who work in conjunction with the all-volunteer Rescue Squad and the Fire Departments of Linden and Lobelville.

These First Responders commit to intensive ongoing training to prepare for the emergencies that we face in our community – whether they are health, fire, accidents, weather-related or natural disasters.

The Office of Emergency Management is tasked with administering and directing a program of comprehensive Emergency Management and Homeland Security issues designed to reduce the vulnerability of citizens and communities of this County to damage, to injury and to loss of life and property by providing a system for the mitigation of, preparedness for, response to and recovery from natural or man-made disasters.

The Office of Emergency Management also encourages you to sign up to receive Emergency Alerts. At the link (below) you can register your home and/or cell phone numbers to receive weather warnings, disaster information or other Code Red alerts that are important to saving lives in the event of disasters.
