Pickens County Emergency Management Agency
E.M.A. – Emergency Management Agency is the local arm of F.E.M.A. (Federal Emergency Management Agency) and G.E.M.A. (Georgia Emergency Management Agency) each of which have become part of the recently formed Office of Homeland Security. E.M.A. is not only responsible for declared disasters, but also goes into action whenever the routine emergency services are unable to adequately respond – mobilizing available local, state, and federal resources. Access to E.M.A. is also through the 911 system.
