Behind the Scenes of Emergency Management

While our meteorologists are working to check radar and look for the latest information on severe weather, Emergency Management is doing the same thing.

Tucked right next to Macon City Hall, the headquarters for the Macon-Bibb Emergency Management Agency is where local officials prepare for storms.

With today's storms, the Center was at Level 2, which meant Emergency Operations were partially opened.  The agency houses live radar and cameras, radio, communication tools, and command centers for officials to make decisions.

You can watch the story above to see 13WMAZ's Tom George tour the facility behind the scenes with Operations Officer Robert McCord.
