As an entity of the local county government, the Carroll County Emergency Management Agency (CCEMA) uses a four-pronged approach to emergency management that includes preparedness, mitigation, response, and recovery. This approach emphasizes planning, training, and resource coordination to prepare our citizens for how they should respond and recover from any threat, actual disaster, an act of terrorism, or emergency situation.

The local EMA was approved and created by resolution and updated in June 2012. The Carroll County Board of Commissioners Chairman and the following mayors approved this resolution:
To assist in protecting Carroll County citizens by coordinating and integrating all activities necessary to build, sustain, and improve the capability to mitigate against, prepare for, respond to, and recover from threatened or actual natural disasters, acts of terrorism, or other man-made disasters in order to save lives, protect property, and reduce the effects of disasters.
