Tier II Reporting
Sooner or later everyone is faced with an emergency but because they usually occur infrequently, some people put emergency planning and preparedness low on their to do list. Unfortunately this could have tragic consequences.
911 is the medium by which you are connected with emergency resources in your community. These resources become your partner they do not relieve you of your personal responsibility to adequately plan and prepare to protect yourself and those in your care.
If you don't have an emergency plan there's no time like the present to prepare one. Organizations can contact Columbia County EMA for assistance with plan development. Families can start with the information provided via the links on this page.
Click on the link named Family Plan Template. Print the template and fill in the blanks. Then access and print the other links. Put all the forms in a binder and you now have a basic family emergency plan. All members of your household must be aware of the contents. We also recommend that your plan be reviewed by the entire family with the change of each season.
The National Incident Management System (NIMS) is a systematic, proactive approach to guide departments and agencies at all levels of government, nongovernmental organizations, and the private sector to work together seamlessly and manage incidents involving all threats and hazards—regardless of cause, size, location, or complexity—in order to reduce loss of life, property and harm to the environment. NIMS is the essential foundation to the National Preparedness System and provides the template for the management of incidents and operations in support of all five National Planning Frameworks.
