Fire Chief/EMA Director
The mission of the Emergency Management Division is to develop plans and procedures that provide an efficient and effective response to the threats facing the City of Smyrna. By developing and exercising our all-hazards plan, we strive to minimize the impacts of an emergency or disaster on our citizens, visitors, the environment, and the City's economy. The Emergency Management Division has various memoranda of understanding (MOU) and agreements in place to strengthen our response capabilities, and continues to develop additional agreements that enhance our working relationships with local, federal, and state partners.
Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT) were started by FEMA to help promote and teach disaster preparedness to citizens. These four-week classes teach first aid, triage, fire safety, and disaster organization.
