Planning, Response, Recovery, Mitigation

The Paulding County Emergency Management Agency (EMA)

The Paulding County Emergency Management Agency was established to serve as a countywide agency to oversee the planning, response, recovery, mitigation, and coordination of all efforts utilized in major emergencies / disasters.

The Paulding County EMA also serves as the coordinating agency and public information arm of the Local Emergency Planning Committee which maintains, updates, and coordinates laws, records, and training exercises dealing with the storage, manufacture, and transportation of hazardous materials in our community.

The agency is also charged with the establishment and updating of the County’s Emergency Operations Plan (E.O.P.). This document is a formal outline of emergency response to all types of emergencies / disasters.

Training / Upcoming Events

The Paulding County Emergency Management Agency encourages you to go out and get a NOAA Weather Radio. Go to our Facebook site and learn to program them with the help of WANE -TV Ch. 15. The Paulding County EMA is hoping to purchase some more to be given away.
