Emergency Management


By definition, an Emergency Management Agency is responsible for comprehensively planning for and responding to and recovering from all manner of disasters, whether man-made or natural.   Perry County’s First Responders are dedicated to saving lives every day.


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. Click on the "Sign up for" image and 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.

Perry County’s emergency needs are served by a dedicated team of volunteers and professionals who coordinate 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. 


Do you know when to call?

Call or text   911    for emergencies only!
Otherwise, call 931-589-3900 or 931-589-3911
**Disclaimer** EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE IS NOT AVAILABLE THROUGH THIS WEB SITE, if you need assistance, find the closest phone and dial 9-1-1
In an emergency, call 911 immediately.

In an emergency, call 911 immediately.

An emergency is any situation that requires immediate assistance from the police, fire department or ambulance. Examples include:

- A fire
- A crime, especially if in progress
- A car crash, especially if someone is injured
- A medical emergency, such as someone who is unconscious, gasping for air or not breathing, experiencing an allergic reaction,
having chest pain, having uncontrollable bleeding, or any other symptoms that require immediate medical attention

Important: If you’re not sure whether the situation is a true emergency, officials recommend calling 911 and letting the call-taker determine whether you need emergency help.

If you dial 911 by mistake, or if a child in your home dials 911 when no emergency exists, do not hang up—that could make 911 officials think that an emergency exists, and possibly send responders to your location. Instead, simply explain to the call-taker what happened.

When you call 911, be prepared to answer the call-taker’s questions, which may include:

- The location of the emergency, including the street address
- The phone number you are calling from
- The nature of the emergency
- Details about the emergency, such as a physical description of a person who may have committed a crime,
a description of any fire that may be burning, or a description of injuries or symptoms being experienced by a person having a medical emergency

Remember, the call-taker’s questions are important to get the right kind of help to you quickly.

Be prepared to follow any instructions the call-taker gives you. Many 911 centers can tell you exactly what to do to help in an emergency until help arrives, such as providing step-by-step instructions to aid someone who is choking or needs first aid or CPR.

Finally, do not hang up until the call-taker instructs you to.
