The Lincoln County Emergency Management Agency is staffed with a director, deputy director and one secretary. Our responsibilities include planning, emergency policies and procedures that will help to make sure we are prepared for an event should it happen. Our office also has automatic weather notification equipment that sends out text messages or emails to department heads and industries. These notifications are sent based on receiving information from the National Weather Service out of Huntsville Alabama. We have ten tornado sirens located within the city and county. Homeland Security grants for Lincoln County are administered out of our office and we actively work with all local industries on hazard mitigation. Day to day operations of emergency management are overseen by the county mayor, a five member advisory committee made up of county commissioners and the EMA Director. All Volunteer services are under the oversight of the EMA director, who also serves as the county fire chief.
