The Phase II, which is covered in this plan, will be adopted by the following jurisdictions Autauga County, Town of Autaugaville, Town of Billingsley, City of Prattville, Town of Elmore, Elmore County, Town of Deatsville, Town Coosada, Town of Eclectic, City Millbrook, Town of Tallassee, Town of Wetumpka, Montgomery County, Town of Pike Road, and City of Montgomery.
This plan fulfills the requirements set forth by the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (DMA 2000). DMA 2000 requires counties to formulate a hazard mitigation plan in order to be eligible for mitigation grants made available by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
Know Your EMA
Most emergencies or disasters are handled at the local level without state or federal assistance and, although the Montgomery City/County EMA is best known for its severe weather assistance and preparedness programs, emergency management is so much more. An emergency management program examines potential emergencies and disasters based on the risks posed by likely hazards; develops and implements programs aimed toward reducing the impact of these events on the community; prepares for those risks that cannot be eliminated; and prescribes the actions required to deal with the consequences and the recovery from those events when they occur.
The mission of the Montgomery City/County EMA is to serve the residents of Montgomery through effective planning to minimize the effects of all disasters. EMA manages and coordinates efforts toward a rapid recovery from disasters and is committed to effective actions to prevent the disasters we can and to reduce the impact of those over which we have no control.
