The City of Laurel’s newest Department, Community Resources and Emergency Management (CREM), works diligently to build a safer and stronger future by providing support activities and services to help Laurel withstand the impacts of unexpected circumstances. By bringing together Emergency Management, Laurel Helping Hands, and the Laurel Multiservice Center, this Department is able to meet both the mental and physical needs of individuals within the community, all while strengthening and engaging the whole community to mitigate, prepare for, respond to, and recover from disaster situations.
Personal, family, and community crises typically come with little to no warning, and result in a variety of short and long-term impacts. By combining mental health assistance, human services, and emergency management, this Department aims to provide the community with the resources it needs to not only endure during crisis, but to become more resilient, strengthening the community for future impacts. It is our mission to build a resilient Laurel, both mentally and physically, to enhance quality of life and limit disruptions to daily activities during isolated or community-wide disasters.
