Under the authority of the Chancellor the mission of the Maricopa Emergency Management System (MEMS) is to develop and implement federally compliant, District-wide plans that protect life, property, and the environment, minimizing injury and restoring mission critical business functions in the shortest and most cost effective manner. The plans will address all elements and best practices of emergency management including risk assessment, planning, mitigation, response and recovery. The MEMS Team will coordinate and provide guidance to each college and District division which will comply with the practices prescribed by the plans. Additionally, the MEMS team will support the plans through testing, training and exercises.
