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.

The second consequence is that we’ll have chances for showers and storms the next few days as an upper level low pressure system approaches from the west. Specifically, Friday will have a marginal chance for severe thunderstorms with heavy rain possible as well as damaging winds and lightning.
