As the path of Hurricane Dorian continues to change, all Camden County residents are urged to monitor the forecast and continue to take preparedness actions for their homes and families.
Camden County Board of Commissioners, Emergency Management Agency (EMA), Camden County Sheriff’s Office, and in partnership with the cities of Kingsland, St. Marys, and Woodbine, along with Camden County Schools, Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, and the National Weather Service (NWS) are working together to coordinate incident response and public communications.
Governor Brian Kemp has issued a State of Emergency and this declaration is focused on preparing the state for possible impacts, by ensuring that critical resources such as fuel and other goods are available. The Governor’s declaration of emergency does not require any immediate action for Camden residents other than to monitor local weather information and public advisories.
Local residents are also encouraged to visit the National Hurricane Center, www.nhc.noaa.gov, and the National Weather Service Office in Jacksonville, www.weather.gov/jax, as trusted sites for weather related information. Additionally, Camden County residents should continue to monitor Camden County Website, Camden County EMA Facebook, Camden County EMA Twitter and Georgia Emergency Management Agency (GEMA) website for updates.
Camden County residents are urged to sign-up for the CodeRED Emergency Notification System by visiting www.camdencountyga.gov/CodeRED or texting “CamdenCodeRED” to 99411. CodeRED is critical during situations like this as a direct method of communication from Camden County EMA to your landline, cell phone, or email. TDD/TTY service is also available. Participants will be notified in the event of emergency situations or critical community alerts.
