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 inter-agency 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.
