Division G Winter Weather Workshop

JSU EM Department will host a Winter Weather Workshop for Division G (Region 7) of the Alabama Emergency Management Agency on November 18th. The purpose of the workshop is to prepare State and local agencies for severe winter weather. Snow and ice storms have been challenging for Alabamians here in central and eastern Alabama for the past two years. Division G will support regional disaster response and recovery requests from local Emergency Management Agencies. The workshop is designed to help state agencies anticipate requests that they may be providing support for and to discuss difficult issues encountered in severe winter storms.
