Before and After the EMA Renovations!

Greetings, all!

Sam here!

As you may have heard us mention on Facebook and here on our website in previous posts, the complete renovation of the EMA’s office is finally finished!

We ran across numerous issues throughout the remodel, from termites to faulty or bad construction and other common problems. Another challenge was that we definitely wanted a more OPEN floor plan, especially with all of the social distancing thanks to our current pandemic.

Without further ado, here are the before and after shots side-by-side:

Overall, we think Director Ron Gentry did an AMAZING job! We have a great space to host meetings or trainings and plenty of room in case the EMA needs to activate the Emergency Operations Center for Camden County!

Stay tuned for our next project!

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.

One thought on “Before and After the EMA Renovations!

  1. CCEMA offices look great! It really needed a facelift; one that will be much appreciated for years to come. Thank you so much Ron for taking this project on and getting it done before your departure; another legacy you’ve left for your time as Director of CCEMA! Thanks again,
