Emergency Preparedness begins at the community level. Effective emergency management relies on valuable relationships between the private and public sector. As a representative of Columbia Rural Electric Association, Glenn Hagfeldt played a vital role in strengthening that relationship and helping to make Columbia County more resilient should an emergency arise.
Glenn is the first recipient of the Columbia County Emergency Management Preparedness Award. Glenn is a member of the Columbia County Emergency Management Advisory Council, the Local Emergency Planning Committee and the Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Committee. Glenn has attended every meeting while serving on the various committees and also attended every Emergency Management Workshop in 2009 and 2010.
When you see Glenn on the street, take a moment to thank him for his dedication to our community and wish him well in his retirement!
