Community Outreach Program

The DeKalb Emergency Management Agency (DEMA) Community Outreach program is a needs-based initiative, structured to provide vital resources to Dekalb County residents. Those resources may be in the form of preparedness education, disaster awareness, or information. Alternatively, resources may include personal protective equipment (PPE), food drive events and/or other tangible items which our team stands willing to provide. Here at DEMA, we pride ourselves as being your friendly neighborhood Emergency Managers.

DEMA invites you to become involved in the DEMA Community Outreach program. Our knowledgeable team is positioned, and willing to visit with your organization to provide preparedness education for emergencies. Here is a printable brochure, covering the basics regarding our agency responsibilities within DeKalb County.
