ABOUT MEMA

Our mission, at the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency, is to safeguard Mississippi and her citizens by fostering a culture of preparedness, executing timely response during disaster, and quickly restoring quality of life post event.  Emergency Management is a comprehensive approach for administering and governing efforts in mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery.

Recognizing that emergency management begins and ends at the local level, the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency is a vital asset for the state of Mississippi.  Regardless of the threat, MEMA will plan and prepare for emergency scenarios, respond to and support local EMAs during emergency events, and coordinate and resource recovery efforts in the wake of a disaster.

MEMA4KIDS

 

MEMA4KIDS is all about preparedness.

We want to give students in grades K-8 the information, tools, strategies, and the peace of mind needed to be fully disaster prepared. After watching the videos and playing the online activities, students will be able to take the lead in showing their friends, family and community how to stay safe in an emergency.

We’re helping kids become true-blue Preparedness Pals!
