Jefferson County EMA

Jefferson County Emergency Management Agency

Well, the EMA is running full speed ahead. Officials have been working hard around the clock for the past few days and I'm sure there are several more ahead of them.

Here are a few pictures of the Jefferson County EMA...

Hurricane Ivan


In all my years in Birmingham, I've never seen buildings downtown with tape on their windows for protection. The weather guys keep saying it's going to be bad here... 70 mph winds is the latest I've heard. And of course, rain, rain, rain and rain.
