Saline County, Missouri
General Political Party
The Saline County Emergency Management Agency's mission is to protect the lives and property of all Saline County residents when disasters threaten public safety due to either natural disasters (snow and/or ice storms, tornadoes, floods, or any severe weather event) or man-made disasters (hazardous materials accident, radiological hazard, or active shooter event) through preparedness, mitigation, response, and recovery.
Our Agency is located in the Saline County Courthouse Annex at the corner of West Arrow and South Odell in Marshall. We are a part-time staff consisting of Tony Day, Emergency Management Director, and Sharon Sheffer, Administrative Assistant. Office hours vary as we are frequently out of the office at meetings, training, or exercises. Whenever possible, office hours are maintained from 8:00 AM - 1:00 PM Monday through Friday.
Disasters can leave you without the basic services for several days. It's better to be prepared by assembling a "go-bag," to keep your supplies in an easy-to-carry bag/container.
