The State of Montana has many resources available to assist local officials in this critical task. The Emergency Management section of the Butte-Silver Bow website provides information about critical preparedness, response and recovery issues that need to be understood by public officials prior to, during and after a disaster or other emergency. Local officials are encouraged to bookmark this page for easy reference and to regularly check out the Butte-Silver Bow Emergency Management homepage for further information on current and upcoming events and programs. In addition, the Plan and Prepare, Hazards, and After a Disaster sections of the website provide comprehensive information on preparedness, specific disasters, and the recovery process.
