Office of Emergency Services

Orangeburg County Emergency Management - Preparedness, Response, Recovery, MitigationThe Orangeburg County Office of Emergency Services was created in 1988. The office was originally the Emergency Preparedness Department. This new name reflects the additional roles and responsibilities of the office.
