Busy Day at the EMA!

Hi, all!

Sam here!

It has been a non-stop day for us here at the EMA!

We have been able to add some new pages to our website:

We have completed our required monthly test of the Nixle/IPAWS emergency alerts.

We have installed more of the new ceiling in the EMA building.

And (MOST IMPORTANTLY) Buzzer the Bee has been working on some fun activities for the children to “BEE” prepared, which we will be posting to his page shortly!

Ahead of us, we still have to find a way to make our Weatherlink station public (if we can!) and hook up our exterior weather camera. If we are able to do both (or even one of these things) we will set it up so you can see them on our website!

And this is only MONDAY???? LOL!!! Wish us luck as we attempt to do even more!

I became the Director of Camden County, MO Emergency Management Agency (EMA) in August 2021 after previously serving as the agency's Deputy Director for a year. As the Director, I manage the day-to-day operations of the EMA, work on the Local Emergency Operations Plan, manage the Facebook, Twitter, and website for the EMA, oversee the webpages for the Camden County Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC), provide oversight and run exercises for the Camden County, MO Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), and work with the Camden County, MO Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES). I hold a general class amateur radio license, call sign KE0LMY. I am also the official "Bee Keeper" of our mascot, Buzzer the Bee, who wants you to BEE Prepared!!! I'm a certified CERT trainer and WebEOC trainer for the Missouri State Emergency Management Agency. I maintain an EXTENSIVE and ever-growing list of credentials and train vigorously with first responder agencies, other EMAs, and with anyone I believe will help me become a better, more well-rounded emergency management director.
