GROUND BREAKING CEREMONY
SEMMES ALABAMA EMERGENCY OPERATIONS CENTER
Crews have already begun to clear the land where the new Semmes Emergency Operations Center is set to be situated. Our prior articles used the term “safe room” as that is the terminology used by federal and state agencies throughout the process. However, the buiding, in addition to housing emergency personnel, will be equipped and manned as an emergency operations center. Several state and county agencies were represented at the ground breaking ceremony as well as many city officials. Kristy Ray, Emergncy Management Specialist with the State Of Alabama Emergency Management Agency, guided the project through the government red tape throughout the project.
