[ARCHIVED] StormReady® Community Recertification

Camden County’s Emergency Management Agency (EMA) is pleased to announce its recertification in the National Weather Service’s (NWS) StormReady® Program.

“This accomplishment is the result of teamwork and partnerships across our community,” said Emergency Management Director Chuck White. “From NWS Jacksonville, Camden County E-911 Center, and local leadership, Camden County residents should be proud of the working relationships we build upon to make our community ready for disasters.”   

Approximately 98% of all presidentially declared disasters are weather related, leading to around 500 deaths per year and nearly $15 billion in damage annually. The StormReady® program seeks to arm America's communities with the communication and safety skills needed to save lives and property-before, during and after the event.
