It is in our interest that the residence of Monument are educated and well quipped with resources relevant to man-made or natural disasters. We need to plan and prepare for the worst cases (such as wild fires, disease, weather conditions, public health crisis, etc.). For when they do come, we are confident that our Town knows how to act and respond accordingly.
The Town supports the Pikes Peak Regional Office of Emergency Management . The PPOEM is established to insure that local governments within El Paso County have the capability to survive a disaster, and to manage and conduct essential emergency functions to support our citizens. This capability of managing a survivable crisis includes the ability to direct, control, manage and coordinate emergency operations with cooperation from local governments, the state and federal government and nonprofit organizations.
