The Grady County Emergency Management Office works to create a safer county and region by collaborating with our stakeholders to increase Grady County’s ability to prepare for, respond to, and recover from natural or man-made disaster and emergencies.  GCEM coordinates with local, state, federal, private, non-profit entities, and community groups to minimize the impact of all potential hazards facing Grady County. GCEM strengthens Grady County’s preparedness through comprehensive disaster planning, hazard identification & risk assessment, hazard mitigation, protection of critical infrastructure, and enhancement of community preparedness. GCEM enhances disaster response by managing the Grady County Emergency Operations Center. The GCEM is improving interagency coordination and information sharing, resource management, and emergency public information and warning. These activities improve Grady County’s ability to recover from a disaster, reducing the time and cost required to return to normal operation and making Grady County a more resilient County.
