The Emergency Management Agency (EMA) of Calhoun County is implementing the Planning Partners Program. The purpose of Planning Partners is to provide a blueprint to help organizations prepare their people and places for emergencies. This program is in partnership with FEMA's Ready Business and Do1Thing organization.

The Planning Program provides participating organizations free and critical resources. This program also provides participants the opportunity to work with a local Emergency Management Professional to guide them through developing a preparedness and recovery plan.


Planning Partner topics include:

  • Local Situational Awareness Alerts and Updates

  • Checklists and information on how to prepare

  • Self-paced development of a Business Continuity Plan

  • Physical signage and electronic logo designating organization as Planning Partner


To successfully become a Preparedness Partner, organizations will complete a 12 step/month process and work alongside the Calhoun County EMA. 

Each month you will choose ONE thing to help prepare your business for disaster.
