Salt Lake County Bureau of Emergency Management serves our citizens by directing and coordinating resources for disaster and emergencies through mitigation, prevention, preparation, response and recovery.
Emergency management is one of the functions that is required by state statute for counties to provide to their citizens. When Unified Fire Authority came into being in July 2004 part of the inter-local that formed UFA specified that the emergency management function within Salt Lake County would be the responsibility of UFA. As a result, UFA functions as an agent of Salt Lake County providing the emergency management function for the approximately 1.2 million citizens and visitors within the 18 cities and towns, 5 metro townships and unincorporated areas that comprise Salt Lake County.
