About GECEMA

The Gadsden/Etowah County Emergency Management Agency is a City of Gadsden agency which serves all citizens in Etowah County. The EMA is here to coordinate basic disaster capabilities of local government. The EMA is also the county's coordinating body with state and federal agencies to assure the citizens of Etowah County are fully protected and accommodated before, during, and after disaster strikes.

In addition to handling disasters and emergencies, the EMA has worked to help various emergency agencies around the county acquire resources to make their jobs safer and easier.  The EMA has also used its resources to acquire: a mobile morgue, firefighting equipment, law enforcement equipment, and community storm shelters.

The Gadsden/Etowah County EMA's Emergency Operations Center, or EOC, is located in the basement of Gadsden City Hall at 90 Broad Street. The EOC is where governing officials and emergency services personnel operate during an emergency. It is capable of functioning at full capacity for 14 days through emergency power, if necessary.
