It’s Emergency Management Week in Iowa. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Emergency Management Association in Iowa. Emergency Management Coordinators throughout the state will meet for their annual business meeting this Thursday. This includes Marion County coordinator Jeff Anderson, who serves as the District Five Executive Committee Representative. Anderson reminds residents with the winter weather season underway, residents should be prepared for things like car breakdowns and quickly changing weather conditions. This includes having things like a blanket, snacks, extra hats, a flashlight, and a first aid kit.
