HomeDepartmentsEmergency Services ****  Click Orange "MENU" Button For More Options **** Cochise is a county of almost 130,000 residents with a diverse mix of educational, industrial, commercial, agricultural and governmental sectors.  We are fortunate to have committed fire, law enforcement, emergency medical, and public works agencies throughout the 6200 square miles of this county. Normally this public safety system does an excellent job dealing with emergencies in both municipal and unincorporated areas throughout Cochise County. However, large-scale emergencies or disasters can impact large land areas and populations within the county; stressing first responder resources well beyond their everyday capabilities. It is the mission of Cochise County Office of Emergency Services (CCOES) to help prepare residents, businesses, and government entities within our county to respond to and recover from these large-scale emergencies or disasters. We are convinced that this “disaster resilience” starts at the local level and includes every person, business, and organization in the county. Through county-wide emergency planning, training, and community outreach efforts, CCOES works with all sectors of our county to promote disaster preparedness and resilience. However, programs alone cannot ensure disaster resilience. It is everyone’s responsibility to make preparedness a priority. Whether this means developing a family emergency plan and disaster kit, keeping property defensible against wildfire threats, or making sure that businesses maintain a continuity of operations plan; everyone must all do their part.

VIEW LARGER A highway sign between Bisbee and Elfrida in Cochise County, 2016. In terms of community spread of coronavirus, Cochise County has one thing going for it in terms of community spread, unlike the urban epicenters of the pandemic: lots of space. Cochise County's entire population is just 133,000. "Which equates to about one person every 27 miles," said Carrie Langley, the county's direct of health and social services. She said one person per 27 miles is just the mathematical breakdown and not how people actually live, but it does illustrate the county's geographic distribution. "We're not all out on city streets walking to get our services. We do have to take private transit to get to and from places. We don't have a lot of crowded locations like what you would see in cities." And, she said, that'll slow the spread of coronavirus. To date, the county has registered two confirmed cases. On the other hand, all that space can lead to challenges in providing care. "If you don't live in one of the municipalities that has a hospital, you're living out in the more rural areas of the community, then you're going to have a longer distance to travel," said Langley.
