Bagnell Dam EAP Annual Seminar

Greetings all!

By now, most of you know or have some idea that the EMA takes part in any and all large-scale emergency planning when we can. Because Camden County is nestled directly between Truman Dam and Bagnell Dam, we are included in the Emergency Action Plans (EAPs) for BOTH. This is extremely good news for all of our residents and visitors because we are able to help facilitate communications, logistics, and more in the event that something happens which could impact the area.

This morning, Ron and Sam participated in the Bagnell Dam Emergency Action Plan Annual Seminar. During this seminar each year, members of the government, community, businesses, etc. are informed about the parts of the dam, plans for partial or total dam failure, emergency alert procedures, and more. Due to the sensitive nature of emergency plans, we can’t share everything with you, but here are some highlights!

  • Actions taken during failure/potential failure of Bagnell Dam
  • Actions taken during failure/potential failure of Truman Dam
  • Parts of the dam and levels of the pool
  • Notification of key leadership and the public
  • and more!!!

We would like to thank our partners at Ameren for keeping us up to date and in the loop about their EAPs!
