As with many fields of work, constant training and communication is essential to success and advancement. Those who make up the Wilson County Emergency Management Agency are no different.
WEMA officials opened their doors to representatives from more than 20 EMAs across Tennessee on Thursday to compare notes and learn new techniques in the profession.
The meeting included Chris Johnson, director of the Middle Tennessee Region of the Tennessee Emergency Management Agency.
“These meetings help local EMA directors learn about new things in the field – new ideas, new laws and new training standards,” Johnson said. “A lot of it is just tweaks of old rules.”
The fact is, WEMA is there to aid us all when we need help, whether it’s through disaster, wreck or medical emergency. It’s comforting to know those who respond have the best and most current know-how available.
