Be Prepared

One of our primary goals is educating the citizens in Columbus and Lowndes County.  Most citizens in Lowndes County have learned from experience that emergencies can and do occur at the most unexpected times. In an effort to encourage families and individuals to enhance preparedness, we have educational materials that offer information and resources for most emergency situations.  Free training and presentations on emergency preparedness are available to the general public on request. Nothing is more important than the average citizen understanding what to do in emergencies, be it tornado, chemical spill or any other situation that threatens life and property.
