Emergency Management Officials Speak

Jackson County and Georgia emergency management officials outline communication methods to Rotarians. They discussed the structure and resources of local, state and federal agencies that are available in case of emergencies, especially the planned upgrading of radio and other means of communicating with citizens on an individual basis. From left are Rotarian Mitch Blinn, who introduced the program; Greg Smith, state warning officer; Karry Teper, radio specialist; Bryan Bullock, Jackson County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) director; club President Jon Howell; and Ewin Whitworth, Georgia Emergency Management / Homeland Security Agency. A book was presented by the club to the Jefferson Public Library in honor of Bullock and the EMA officials.
