Hurricane Irma Information


Model Emergency Management Guide

ACCG is well aware that you, your county EMA and public safety officials, as well as others, are preparing for the storm and that you are being ably assisted by GEMA. Please know that as your county association, we are prepared to help you all if your standard channels of response cannot meet your immediate need, particularly as they relate to communication with other local and state agencies which can provide resources you may need.

If you need to contact us at any time, including this weekend, please do not hesitate to contact Brent WIlliams at (229) 942-4363 or Beth Brown at (770) 262-5092.
