Columbia County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) will be hosting an Open House in conjunction with the National Weather Service Severe Weather Preparedness Week on February 8, 2022 from 3 PM to 8:00 PM. Everyone is invited to visit the Emergency Operations Center (650 Ronald Reagan Drive, Evans, GA) to meet EMA staff and ask questions regarding emergency management and operations in Columbia County. Additionally, the Mobile Operations Center will be parked out back for people to walk through and see its capabilities.
Other county partners participating in the event include the Georgia Department of Health which will be offering Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccine and booster shots for adults and children ages 5 years and older. Columbia County Animal Services will have pets on site available for adoption and can answer all related questions. Columbia County Fire Rescue will have a fire engine on location as well as the Fire Safety House. The Columbia County Sheriff’s Office will have a vehicle and deputy, and their ID a Child program will be available to get your children fingerprinted. We want to highlight our appreciation for our men and women who help keep us safe on a daily basis.
There will be giveaways and drawings for emergency kits and weather radios as well as a schedule to sign up for future classes, including Build a Ready Kit and Stop the Bleed. We look forward to having everyone come out to participate and meet your Emergency Management Agency team.
