The mission of the City of Glenn Heights Office of Emergency Management is to coordinate activities of the City departments responsible for continued operations during disaster, coordinate agreement for the use of resources, communicate with State and Federal agencies and provide education and training to citizens and municipal employees. After the December 26th, 2015 tornado, the City became more focused on Emergency Management. Having dealt first hand with a devastating disaster in its own community. Preparedness became a top priority with the Council and the Public Safety Department. In September of 2017, Eddie Burns took the lead as Emergency Management Coordinator (EMC), to replace the previous EMC. Deputy Chief/Fire Marshal, Keith Moore has remained the Assistant, Emergency Management Coordinator, creating a budget line for Emergency Management, which Council approved and was funded in 2016-2017 and increased in 2017-2018. This allowed for several improvements to our Emergency Operations.
