Today In The Upper Cumberland: Disaster Planning

This week, thousands of California residents have been watching nature threaten their homes and families. The wildfires around Los Angeles…just another reminder of the dangers that local governments must be ready for. And we’ve seen plenty of those in 2017. How prepared are we in the Upper Cumberland for the unexpected? Weather? Natural disaster? Something criminal? A plane crash. A major gas leak or chemical spill.

That’s just the tip of the iceberg for leaders like Tommy Copeland and Chris Massingale. Tommy In Putnam County, Chris in Overton and Pickett….plan constantly for the unexpected. Tommy works with Putnam CountyEMS, Chris Massingale with Overton/Pickett EMS.
