A Message From GEMA: Resource information for those impacted by Hurricane Michael

Please put this into the hands of those you feel need it most. Share with fellow citizens and any members of your team who may interact with the public. We need to emphasize the sharing of information via word-of-mouth, as many citizens are still without power and communications.

All resource information is on the home page of our website at gema.ga.gov and is updated frequently. Most of it is included below in case internet connectivity is slow for you. Information can also be found on our Facebook and Twitter.

Thank you for all you do. Your hard work and dedication is appreciated.
