If you think it won’t ever happen to you, you are wrong. Every county in Georgia has been under a State of Emergency Declaration at least once since September 2017. Many counties have faced both federal and state emergency declarations as a result of damages caused by tornadoes, straight line winds, flooding and hurricanes. Learn the steps to take to make sure your county is prepared, how various levels of government must come together in a coordinated effort, how to prepare for the unexpected – and most importantly – how you, as a county official, can Keep Calm and Carry On in the event the next disaster hits your community.
