Watonwan County has an appointed director who has the responsibility to coordinate and prepare county government institutions, public and private sector agencies, and volunteers for dealing with emergencies or disaster conditions. This is done through an all-hazards approach.

The emergency manager works with area first-responders and agencies through:
  • Drills
  • Planning
  • Practicing and Exercises
  • Preparation
  • Training

It is also the responsibility of the director to develop and maintain the county emergency operations plan.
