City of Farley's Emergency Management

Emergency Management

Emergency Management, which was formerly known as Civil Defense, prepares for and coordinates rescue, recovery, and relief in the event of a natural disaster or man-made disaster that would affect the City of Farley. The Emergency Management team is Charlie Demmer- Director, Marty Benda- Assistant Director and Bill Einwalter- Shelter Director. The Memorial Hall has been designated as the community's emergency shelter in the event of any disaster.

Dubuque County has instituted the "CodeRED' Emergency Notification System - a high-speed telephone communication service for emergency notifications. This system allows local officials to telephone all or targeted areas of the city or county in case of an emergency situation that requires immediate action.


Examples of times when the CodeRED system could be utilized:

  • Drinking water contamination
  • Utility outage
  • Evacuation notice & route
  • Missing person
  • Fires or Floods
  • Bomb threat
  • Hostage situation
  • Chemical spill or Gas leak
  • and other emergency incidents where rapid and accurate notification is essential for life safety.
