We have been told that this coming winter will be colder and wetter than usual. Are you ready?

Join your Columbia County Emergency Management staff for presentations being held around the county in October and November. Each presentation will be packed with useful information on how to get ready for winter and how to prepare for disasters in general. Each event is FREE and there will be a prize drawing for participants at each venue!
