About Boulder ODM
The Office of Emergency Management (OEM) was created in 2005 and operated under an Intergovernmental agreement (IGA) between the City of Boulder and Boulder County serving as the Board of Directors and overseeing the delivery of disaster services. The IGA was updated in 2015 to reflect changes to staffing, core tasking and budgeting processes. In 2022 the IGA was updated again reflecting a change to the Board of Directors and re-branding the title of the office to accurately reflect the mission and services provided to the community. The name has changed to the Office of Disaster Management for the City of Boulder and Boulder County. The mission emphasizes the focus on disaster management which is to limit the impacts of disasters on humans, property, environment, and infrastructure through community preparedness, mitigation of hazards, effective disaster response and recovery.
