Marine Rescue


Horry County Emergency Management is responsible for developing emergency response plans and taking a lead role in the coordination of those plans during an emergency. Emergency Management employees work closely with state and local officials to gather resources necessary to overcome a disaster or emergency situation. Our employees train for many types of disasters but hurricanes are a primary concern due to our coastal location. 


Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for the citizens of Horry County and improve their resolve to cope with disasters. We shall achieve our mission by utilizing an all-hazards comprehensive emergency management program that plans, partners, and coordinates the preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation efforts with the community, state and federal agencies, volunteer organizations, and the private sector. We shall adhere to all applicable laws and regulations and strive to meet or exceed the expectations of the people we serve
