Gene Gray from the Local Emergency Plan Commission came before the Marshall County Board of Commissioners Monday morning to seek approval of the emergency response plan.
Gray explained that there were a few format changes to the plan and updates were made. The plan includes site plans for evacuations and how to report hazardous material. All departments are to respond accordingly to the plan.
The commissioners told Gray that the plan looked good and that he and EMA Director Clyde Avery and other members have worked hard to make this report available and to create protocol for emergency situations. The commissioners unanimously approved the plan and signed the document to enact the changes.
