We wanted to take some time this month to bring a little Christmas cheer to the employees and volunteers of the EMA, along with the great residents and visitors of Camden County with decorations and help from our friend, Buzzer!
We brought shades of blues and silver to the whole office and let Buzzer go BEE CRAZY putting up bee-shaped lights in the windows of the EMA!
We are so thankful for all of the kind, caring people who support us and all of the healthcare workers, first responders, essential workers, and others who keep this country moving during this pandemic.
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.
