Disaster: (noun) a calamitous event, especially one occurring suddenly and causing great loss of life, damage or hardship.
Many people remember forever where they are and what they are doing when a significant disaster impacts their lives. The impact on day-to-day life is the most devastating part of a disaster. Whether it is a fire that destroys a single home or an EF-5 tornado that wipes out an entire neighborhood, the life of one or many Greene County residents can be changed forever.
The Springfield-Greene County Office of Emergency Management strongly believes that preparedness is the key to mitigating a disaster's impact. The more we do to prepare ourselves before disaster strikes, the less impact it will have when it does. It is a goal of the OEM to help build a disaster-resistant community where citizens are prepared for any disaster, be it natural or human-caused.
