Be Ready for the Storm

While the South Carolina Emergency Management Division (SCEMD) is the lead agency in the state during a weather emergency, DHEC and other state agencies perform critical roles that help protect our residents and help our state recover from hurricanes and other disasters as quickly as possible.
