The second annual meeting of the Etowah County Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) and the Etowah County Voluntary Organization Active in Disaster (VOAD) was held on Thursday, August 3rd at 11:00 a.m. This meeting allowed members of both organizations to coordinate with vendors and other members. As part of the event, several individuals were recognized for representing a level of community service that exceeded the expectation of their peers and the public at large. The Gadsden/Etowah County EMA would like to thank Gadsden Job Corps, The Gadsden Civil Air Patrol Cadets, Alabama Department of Environmental Management, and all participating vendors for their support of the second annual exhibition. A special thanks to AllCOMM Wireless for providing the meal. To learn more about the LEPC or VOAD organizations visit gecema.com.
