Our EmergencyOperationsCenter is missing one important component and that is YOU!
The main objective of the Montour County Emergency Management Agency is to work closely with local emergency responders, to provide emergency assistance to the residents and visitors of MontourCounty in the event of emergencies: both man-made and natural disasters.
Itís the responsibility of our department to equip and staff an emergency operations center consolidated with warning and communications systems, to support government operations in emergencies and provide other essential facilities and equipment for agencies assigned emergency functions.
In the time of a disaster or large incident the resources of the Montour County Emergency Management Agency could be stretched to their limits. To help address these issues we are looking for volunteers to assist us in our operations center. Prerequisites are a high school diploma or equivalent, basic computer literacy is a plus and a background check.
