Commit to Preparedness: Join the Greene County Office of Emergency Management in preparing our school children and school district. Is your school prepared? Not all emergencies feature a loud siren and or breaking news. Teachers know that a simple outbreak of seasonal flu can wreak havoc on a classroom or school. Prepare yourself, your home, and your child from.
Does your child have an emergency contact list with them. Make sure your child has a list of contact info to reach you or a responsible adult in a time of need.
To be the most disaster resilient community in America
The Springfield-Greene County Emergency Management Program along with community stakeholders strives to be a national model of best practices in mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery against high-impact events to reduce loss of life, damage to property and harm to the environment. The Springfield-Greene County Emergency Management Program will lead enhanced regionalization of emergency management across southwest Missouri.
Springfield-Greene County's emergency management program received national accreditation from the Emergency Management Accreditation Program (EMAP) in April, 2012. EMAP is an independent & voluntary evaluation of state and local emergency management programs based on national best practices. At the time of our accreditation, Springfield-Greene County was one of only 13 local programs in the nation to be accredited by EMAP.
StormReady, a program started in 1999 in Tulsa, OK by the National Weather Service, helps arm America's communities with the communication and safety skills needed to save lives and property--before and during the event. StormReady helps community leaders and emergency managers strengthen local safety programs.
StormReady communities are better prepared to save lives from the onslaught of severe weather through advanced planning, education and awareness. No community is storm proof, but StormReady can help communities save lives.
Springfield-Greene County has been certified a StormReady Community since 2004.
