Welcome to Waseca County Emergency Management

Waseca County Emergency Management maintains an on-call state of readiness twenty four hours a day, seven days a week. This is accomplished by the dedication of Minnesota Certified Emergency Managers. Denise Wright is the Emergency Management Director and Administrator Michael Johnson serves as the Deputy Director.

Programs such as (SKYWARN) Severe Weather Spotter program, Amateur Radio Emergency Services (ARES), Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), and the Sheriff Posse are successful because of many volunteers who with the willingness of their family and employers are able to leave at a moments notice to serve our community when needed. Our staff and volunteers are well prepared to respond to disasters because of the pride and enthusiasm they show in ongoing training for disaster response. In addition to responding to disasters, our staff and volunteers provide public education opportunities in disaster preparedness, response and recovery.

We hope this website will provide you with valuable information regarding the emergency management program and our services along with helpful disaster preparedness information.

Please call Waseca County Emergency Management at 507-835-0694 if you have any questions or email Denise Wright, Emergency Management Director at
