The Christian County Emergency Management Agency will be hosting an Elected Officials Training Summit at the Taylorville Memorial Hospital Janice Hopper Memorial Auditorium on March 30 from 8:30 a.m. to noon. Christian County EMA Director, Mike Crews, told Regional Radio News there will be two keynote speakers along with himself, as they are Dawn Cook and Tim Gleason.
Crews developed an elected official’s preparedness manual for all Christian County elected officials to help better prepare them for a local disaster.
Crews noted the declaration process following a flood, just like what occurred in Kincaid in late December will be discussed.
Crews hopes every elected official in the county, communities, and townships will be able to attend the event.
