Welcome to the Franklin County Emergency Management Agency home page. This site has been developed to provide you information about the Franklin County Emergency Management Agency, individual emergency preparedness for the hazards we face in Franklin County, and how we can mitigate their effects. The Franklin County Emergency Management Agency directs, controls, and coordinates response efforts during a major disaster. The Agency also assists both public and private entities in developing mitigation plans to lessen the impact of disasters, through hazardous identification and risk assessment. Annually our staff collaborates, develops, reviews and updates plans which are in place to address specific hazards within our county. These include plans for chemical facilities, day cares, personal care homes, skilled nursing facilities, schools, pandemic threat, mass care, mass casualty, mass fatality, drought, agricultural incidents, continuity of operations, and transportation emergencies. We sincerely hope that you will take the time to browse through the information on our site. Being prepared for emergencies or disasters is your responsibility and should not be taken lightly. Tips on how you can prepare yourself are offered under the header labeled "Plan & Prepare" and "Hazards." Franklin County EMA hopes that this information will be used to protect you, your family and your property from any disaster, whether it be natural or man-made.
