The Alabama Emergency Management Agency (AEMA) is Alabama’s coordinating agency for disaster preparedness, response, and recovery.

AEMA is charged with maintaining a comprehensive statewide program of emergency management. The division ensures that Alabama is prepared to respond to emergencies, recover from them, and mitigate their impacts. AEMA coordinates the efforts of the Federal Government with other departments and agencies of state government, with county and municipal governments and school boards, and with private agencies that have a role in emergency management.
