The Lyon County Emergency Management Office is dedicated to the protection of lives and property in our jurisdiction. Through the coordinated efforts of the the Local Emergency Planning Committee and Community Organizations Active in Disaster, our mission is achieved through the effective orchestration of public and private resources, robust emergency response plan development, seamless implementation of these plans during emergency operations, and a comprehensive program for preparation, training, and education.
Our overall objective is to minimize the impact of emergencies and disasters on our community, through proactive planning, efficient response, and effective recovery mechanisms. Our role not only encompasses responding to emergencies when they occur but also involves ensuring our community is well prepared and resilient in the face of potential threats.
Lyon County does not currently have a public shelter. It is the responsibility of each person to have a safe place to go and the items needed in the event of an emergency.
