EMA and CERT Had a BLAST at the 2021 Dogwood Festival!

Greetings, all!

Sam here!

We had such a GREAT time at the Dogwood Festival this year!

Our CERTs helped with the first responder entrance while I took care of the Vendor/VIP/Handi-capable parking lot! That’s right. I learned not to say handicapped or disabled, but handi-capable instead! Love the positive connotation!

We had PRIME seats for the parade and it was the highlight of our Saturday!!! I LOVED the Lego costumes!

Thank you to everyone working so hard behind the scenes to pull off events like this one! Can’t wait for next year!

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.
