In the event of a natural or manmade disaster, one Wiregrass emergency management director wants more flexibility in handling a crisis.
Coffee County E.M.A. director John Tallas says the state requires that an emergency meeting with the county commission be held at the government complex in New Brockton.
Tallas says in the event that the complex is damaged or destroyed, alternative sites must be found.
"Should this area be destroyed by some disaster by law they can't meet and conduct business, Wilson will help that they get a local bill passed to meet in some other locations in Coffee County, "said Tallas
Tallas will examine possible sites across Coffee County for E.M.A operations in the event the New Brockton facility is knocked out of service.
