  • Why should you prepare?

    With the concept of emergency preparedness, there is a realization that communities may be impacted by several types of hazards during a lifetime. Hazards come in many forms with the understanding that Georgia experiences a broad range of weather that includes everything from tornadoes to hurricanes to ice storms to the possibility of an earthquake.  However, there are other hazards that communities should be prepared for, including man-made and natural emergencies.  The emergency preparedness for these events starts with knowing what to do before, during and after an emergency for those that are a part of this community and for those that may be visiting. Being prepared may make the difference when seconds count.
