Mobile County Emergency Management Agency was originally established in 1952, as the Mobile County Civil Defense.
In response to Federal, State, and local guidelines the Mobile County Commission passed a resolution on June 8, 1987, that established the Mobile County Emergency Management Agency (MCEMA), as the Office of Government to act for the Mobile County Emergency Planning District.
