Seventeen Agencies Stand with Tennessee Silver Jackets
In early September 2015, the Tennessee Silver Jackets Team gathered to sign its team charter. While many Silver Jackets teams establish their charter with just a handful of federal and state agencies on board, Tennessee's charter included signatories from six federal agencies, five state agencies, and six local and regional governments. Congratulations to Tennessee; we look forward to seeing your partnerships continue and grow.
TN Post Disaster Guide
The Tennessee Post Disaster Guide will provide emergency management personnel, across the State of Tennessee, with a better understanding of available resources to aid in the recovery process, and will also help prepare counties and communities for future disaster events. In addition, the guide will reduce the need for coordination with the state, and allow entities at all levels of government to work more efficiently and focus their efforts where needed during an emergency. This guide provides information on disaster declarations, permitting requirements, assistance programs offered at the federal and state level, documenting an event and what type of information is needed, and more.
