This function is an entity that is rarely considered until a disaster strikes. When a disaster does strike, CEP's presence and benefit to the community comes to the forefront. Response to wide-spread disasters is only one facet of this department. The remaining aspects of CEP are mitigation and recovery. Mitigation is the process whereby potential hazards are identified and steps taken in an attempt to minimize their overall negative impact to the community. Recovery is the process of providing a central point of contact for resource identification to the community in the event of a disaster.

CEP is involved in training relating to this unique area. The training consists of designing and implementing various types of exercises (hazardous materials exercises, weather related disasters, and technological related exercises). In addition, this function has set up several weather spotter training courses for city, county, and the general public.
