In her free time, Emily enjoys golfing and riding the motorcycle with her husband and hanging out with their big dogs Ischka, Michter, and Maduro.

Our team works hard every day to help our citizens prepare for and cope with any type of emergency. Our mission is to:
– reduce loss of life and property
– protect our county’s critical infrastructure from all types of hazards through a comprehensive, risk-based, emergency management program of MITIGATION, PREPAREDNESS, RESPONSE, AND RECOVERY.

It is our honor to serve Morgan County!
