Emergency Operations

The GCSO’s Emergency Operations Unit is staffed by one (1) Commander and two (2) Sergeants. This unit is responsible for all emergency operations matters including Search & Rescue, Wildfires and other large scale natural disasters, and more.

The Garfield County Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) outlines how the county government complies with and implements the requirement of the Colorado Division of Emergency Management to protect the lives and property of the citizens of the county. The county EOP serves as a bridge between the Local Municipal Emergency Operations Plan and the State of Colorado Emergency Operations Plan.

More information can be found on the Garfield County Emergency Management Website.
