Supervisors approve new planning committee


Jackson County supervisors on Monday approved a Local Emergency Planning Committee, a group of volunteers who will work with the emergency-management director for the county.

On the committee are representatives from industry, the hospital system, ambulance service, businesses and first responders. The mission is to help develop a strong emergency-response plan for any accidents and to help sponsor an annual exercise for emergency response.
