Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) The Twin Falls County Department of Emergency Services meets once a month and updates its emergency plan every two years.
The meetings are held every second Tuesday of the month and the public is encouraged to attend.
This Tuesday, the first response agencies met to review the county's plan and discuss changes.
Its goal is to make sure the needs of the citizens are met.
With lasts week’s flooding, the county's plan was put to the test.
"Being able to work with the National Weather Service, surrounding agencies, law enforcement, fire, our canal company just monitoring the water, monitoring what was going on. Putting out emergency alert notices or information to the citizens, on road closures or different issues that were going on. American Red Cross came and supported some of the families that needed homes," explains Jackie Frey, Emergency Services Coordinator.
