The Municipality of Norristown's Emergency Management Department's mission is to develop and maintain a comprehensive plan to prepare for, respond to, and recover from manmade and natural disasters may they occur within the Municipality. The Emergency Management Department reports to the Fire Chief and is a branch of the Fire Department.
