PBEM utilizes planning, training and exercises to continually develop and sustain the city’s mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery capabilities. These capabilities minimize the loss of life and property and protect the environment from emergencies and significant disruptions.
The bureau's work in 2014-2016 is aligned around five strategic goals:
Expand and maintain a complete suite of mitigation, response, and recovery plans that meet objective standards of high professional achievement in the field of emergency management.
Advance Emergency Coordination Center (ECC) readiness.
Inspire a culture of preparedness.
Integrate emergency management into broader community-oriented goals and investment strategies.
Adopt equity and diversity goals as part of a whole community approach to emergency preparedness.
