Why be a volunteer?

First of all, thank you for your time and interest in the Williams County Emergency Management Agency (EMA). EMA volunteers are vital to the day to day functions of the community services provided. Obviously, it takes a large group of volunteers to expedite these services. This is why, we are always looking for individuals to join our team and secure a program for the future. You as a volunteer will be in a unique team of individuals responsible for the safety and protection of family, friends, and the community.

As a volunteer, you can feel proud that you are providing a service to the community. Many people feel they would like to be more active and be involved with their community, they just don’t know how. This is the opportunity for you to join in, by participating in EMA training and exercises, learning more about the hazards and risks within your community and being involved in times of emergencies.

As a volunteer you can choose what area of service within EMA you would like to join, according to your interest. You can choose to participate in as many as you like, including all of them. Volunteering in the EMA offers you a wide range of opportunity and learning. EMA will provide training, as much as you like, to our volunteers. We provide a monthly meeting to update and keep you informed of information vital to the community. Here is some other opportunities that you can participate in as an EMA volunteer:

-Band Day

-Choke Cherry Festival

-Upper Missouri Valley Fair

-Ham Fest

-Amateur Radio Field Day
