Oak Lawn Emergency Management Agency (EMA)

The purpose of the Oak Lawn Emergency Management Agency (EMA) is to prepare for, protect against, respond to and recover from natural and man made incidents and events up to and including major disasters. The Oak Lawn EMA accomplishes this by building community partnerships within both the public and private sector, initiating and supporting village-wide preparedness efforts, and keeping the public informed about hazards and protective measures.
