Emergency Management

The Bernalillo County Office of Emergency Management is a state-of-the-art emergency management system that coordinates effective use of county, state and federal resources to protect the lives and health of Bernalillo County citizens and visitors from the effects of natural or human-caused disasters, including acts of terrorism.


Current Travel Restrictions

Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham and the state of New Mexico are committed to mitigating the widespread community transmission of COVID-19 by enforcing self-isolation for persons travelling into New Mexico from high-risk areas. This pertains to anyone travelling by airplane, public transportation, or vehicle.

All visitors are expected to comply with New Mexico masking and distancing guidelines while in our state, and would be subject to whatever rules exist in their state of residence when they go home.

Emergency preparedness includes maintaining emergency operations plans, training county employees and citizens, and coordinating mutual aid resources. The department is on call around the clock for both small- and large-scale situations such as hazardous materials realeases, natural disasters, technological disasters, weapons of mass destruction incidents, and acts of terrorism.

The county’s Emergency Operations Center is where upper management gathers to determine the best course of action during significant incidents or times of disaster. County staff may also respond to the scene to serve as an interagency liaison, and coordinate state or federal agency support requests.

The county also can bring in a large collection of equipment, including communication tools, support vehicles, generators, and shelters. Additionally, county support personnel can, through mutual aid agreements and organizations, can coordinate logistics support, special task forces, and search and rescue and communication teams.

Hazard Mitigation Plan Survey

The City of Albuquerque and Bernalillo County, in collaboration with the Albuquerque Metropolitan Arroyo Flood Control Authority (AMAFCA), the Village of Los Ranchos de Albuquerque, the Village of Tijeras, the Middle Rio Grande Conservancy District (MRGCD), and the Albuquerque/Benalillo County Water Utility Authority (ABCWUA) is updating its Hazard Mitigation Plan, in an effort to be better prepared in the event of natural, or human-caused disasters. The multi-agency task force wants to identify ways to reduce losses and protect the communities from hazard events. The agencies are seeking input from the public through a short, five-question, online Hazard Mitigation Survey to help better understand vulnerabilities, experiences, and opportunities to reduce the impacts of hazards before they occur. Responses will be taken until September 30, 2020.
