Bureau Putnam Emergency Preparedness Community Partners
Our department is a founding member of the Bureau Putnam Emergency Preparedness Community Partners, a group of community members representing many organizations that routinely respond to emergencies within our community.
BPEPCP works as a group to prepare for any type of emergency in our community. In the past this group has assisted with many different situations, including the Euclid Chemical fire, 3 train derailments, an ethanol spill, a village evacuation and a blizzard.
During major emergencies, working together is vital to the overall response, communication and recovery from the event. The members are from a variety of community response agencies that share common goals in disaster situations.
The group is presently made up of representatives from Bureau County Sheriff's Department, Princeton Fire Service, Bureau/Putnam Ambulance Association, Perry Memorial Hospital, St. Margaret's Hospital, Bureau & Putnam County Health Department, Bureau County EMA, Putnam County EMA, and community support agencies such as the Bureau County Red Cross, Mounted Search and Rescue, and Bureau/Putnam Medical Reserve Corps. We are also looking for members from other public and private agencies and a variety of municipalities from within Bureau and Putnam counties to join the committee in its efforts.
Our Marshall County Emergency Planning Partners are also participating with BPEPCP including the Marshall County EMA. Marshall County Sheriff and MRC to further and better coordinate services among our three counties.
