Horry County Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan

The Horry County Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP) results from county emergency management staff recognizing that a comprehensive plan is needed to enhance Horry County's ability to manage emergency and disaster situations. Through the implementation of measures aimed at the four phases of emergency management; preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation, lives can be saved and property damage minimized. This ongoing operation is called comprehensive emergency management and it emphasizes the interrelationship of activities, functions, and expertise necessary to deal with disasters. The CEMP was created by the county emergency management staff working cooperatively with the state and local governments and non-profit organizations that have a role in the emergency management program in Horry County.
