JCHSEM Director Barbara Miller to assist disaster operations in Greenbrier County

By Staff | Jul 1, 2016

Jefferson County Homeland Security and Emergency Management’s (JCHSEM) mission is to reduce the loss of lives and property and protection of the environment from all types of hazards through a comprehensive emergency management program consisting of preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation. While Jefferson County has not been directly impacted by the flooding, JCHSEM feels that it is within their mission to help those in need.

Therefore, in support of this belief and desire to help those in need, JCHSEM Director Barbara Miller, is being deployed to assist the West Virginia Flood Victims in Greenbrier County. Miller has been requested by the WV Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management to assist the Greenbrier County Emergency Manager, Al Whitaker during this difficult time.

“We are very blessed in Jefferson County to be one of the counties in our state that was not affected by this disaster. However, our Southern West Virginia neighbors were devastated. I have been deployed by the WV Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management to the Greenbrier County Emergency Operations Center to assist them with their flood recovery efforts and am happy to assist in any way possible,” Miller said.

The West Virginia Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD) is actively seeking volunteers to assist in disaster operations throughout the 44 impacted counties in West Virginia. For more information on how to register, check out: wvvoad.communityos.org/cms/home.
