Assistant Director Sam Henley here!
Director Ron Gentry and I want to tell you about some things we have available to the public here at the EMA!
As you have probably seen from our weekly COVID-19 call notes, we have about 14,000 paper masks available for everyone. We are reviewing bids right now to bring another 100,000 masks into Camden County. Likewise, we have almost 400 gallons of hand sanitizer. Please bring your own bottles/jugs/containers, as we do not provide them.
Beyond the COVID-19 supplies, we keep a number of resources on hand which are free to the public. We support the READY in 3 campaign and you can see a partial list of the pamphlets, fliers, DVDs, booklets, and such which we have available here. We also have a myriad of information on identity protection. Our friend Buzzer the Bee helps us keep all of those ready to go!
We also support the county’s Community Emergency Response Team. We are working on ways to make their meetings and some of the training available online. You can learn more about the Camden County, MO CERT here. CC MO CERT’s Facebook page can be found here.
Our office is open to the public and we welcome you to come down and visit with us about all things related to emergency preparedness! We are open Monday through Friday, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. As long as you can maintain social distancing, no masks are required, however we do have some here if you need them!
