DeSoto County Fire and Emergency Management Agency (EMA)

Welcome to DeSoto County Fire and EMA



Our main goal as a department is to save lives, prevent injury, protect property, and educate our citizens on proper emergency protocols. These reasons allow us to help our community survive disasters, both natural and man-made, by utilizing the expertise of the men and women in the DeSoto County Fire and Ambulance departments. We accomplish this mission by establishing community wide readiness through public education, risk assessment, planning, and inter agency communication.
