2022 is starting off with some REALLY fantastic public outreach efforts and we have received invitations from local businesses to help them with severe weather preparedness for their employees, homeowners, and customers!
Today, Director Sam Henley met with Della Miller, owner of Missouri Association Management, LLC, which manages 10 properties in Camden and Miller Counties.
Della reached out to our office indicating she was interested in helping condo owners become more prepared for severe weather and other emergencies.
Today’s meeting took place at the Indian Pointe Condominiums, where Della and Sam discussed an overall plan, then proceeded with a walkthrough to determine some actionable items for the Indian Pointe Condos specifically.
Even BEGINNING this process can be overwhelming. It is not a “quickly achieved” goal and is better approached in more of a “milestone” way. Sam made a few easily achievable recommendations to get the ball rolling, including the placement of NOAA weather radios in public areas, getting people to sign up for emergency alerts through the county’s mass notification system (text 65020 to 888777), placing AEDs in public gathering areas and encouraging training on CPR/AED/First Aid, free Community Emergency Response Team training, and more.

We want to thank Della and Missouri Association Management, LLC for inviting us to a seat at their table while they embark on their emergency preparedness journey for their residents and visitors! Partnerships like these GREATLY help to mitigate large-scale emergencies!
