John Specht, Emergency Manager
Shoshone County Emergency Management is tasked with planning for and response to large-scale disaster conditions such as landslides, forest fires, flooding, pandemic illnesses and other such events. We are the focal point between the Idaho Bureau of Homeland Security and Shoshone County. Emergency Management interacts with and supports all first responders in the county including Law Enforcement, Fire Departments and EMS units.
Emergency Management assists in development and coordinating tabletop and full scale exercises in all areas of the County during which our response agencies have the opportunity to work together in a controlled environment.
The County Emergency Manager works for the Shoshone County Commissioners and advises them on Disaster conditions, the need for declaring a County Disaster and other projects as assigned by them.
