Welcome to Montana Disaster and Emergency Services

Montana Disaster & Emergency Services (MT DES) is the lead agency coordinating comprehensive emergency management in Montana.  In collaboration with local and tribal governments we build, sustain, and improve our ability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate hazards. 

MT DES is organizationally situated within the Montana Department of Military Affairs.  The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) provides guidance and grant oversight.

We recognize that comprehensive emergency management requires strong partnerships with public, private, and non-profit partners, as well as with individual citizens.  Engaging the whole-community results in robust planning intended to minimize the impact to our populations affected by disasters.

For general questions, you can contact MT DES by calling (406) 324-4777 or by sending an email to mtdes@mt.gov
