 and public information on relevant hazards.

EMERGENCY REPORTING

Emergency reporting involves tracking and reporting the use of resources including personnel, supplies, and equipment. Locally this information will assist us in predicting future needs requests from local, state and federal emergency management agencies. This will help to declare a local emergency.
