Raleigh, Mississippi - The Smith County Emergency Management Agency announced today that in partnership with the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency, has implemented a new tool called Crisis Tract. Crisis Tract allows county residents to report any residential or business damage that they may see or experience from a storm or other disaster. This information is invaluable to first-responders and emergency management personnel as it allows for a faster response and reduces the time needed to survey damage.
This announcement comes on the evening of another severe weather outbreak across the State of Mississippi. Smith County Emergency Management Director Heather Easterling advised citizens to take the appropriate precautions, and ensuring that they have an action plan in place if severe weather warnings are issued.
You can submit information if you receive damage to your resident or business structure. Please note - This is only for damages to a structure. Driveways, fences, sheds, barns and etc are not considered structural damage. Once you submit a request, EMA will send out a damage assessment team from our office in Raleigh to assess your property. If you have any questions, please call the Smith County Emergency Management Agency at 601-782-9151.
