Goldsboro Emergency Management Agency
Participates in Biennial Three Mile Island Nuclear Incident Drill
A special thank you to the people who participated in our TMI Nuclear Drill in May 2019. They include Rhett Baker, Bob Charles, Bob Kinney, Brian Komschlies, Pat Mullins, Craig Mullins, Lee Fishel, Doug Smith, Beth Geesey, Robin Gross and Scott Gross. This year the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) evaluated our response to the drill. We have people in our community, and outside it, who devoted considerable hours preparing and participating in the drill. You can sleep a bit more soundly knowing that you are living among people, including some elected officials, who are concerned enough about public safety to participate in the training and exercises. Let them know, when you see them in the community, that you appreciate their concern for us.
We need additional volunteers for positions on the Emergency Management Team, such as an additional Liaison Officer, and someone with bookkeeping skills to volunteer for Administration and Mitigation Officer. If you are even slightly interested and want to know more, please call me and we will make a time to talk. Veterans of all ages, women and men, middle aged women and men, and young women and men age 21 and above are welcome. You will learn a lot, and you will give a lot of support to others.

Three Mile Island Nuclear Drill
The Goldsboro Emergency Management Agency (EMA) Team participated in the biennial Three Mile Island Nuclear Incident DRILL in early May. The intense exercises included participation of FEMA, PEMA, Emergency Management Teams and first responders from all the surrounding counties, cities, and boroughs, as well as TMI.
The purpose of the exercise is for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to evaluate each team on their performance in a simulated nuclear incident at TMI. FEMA verifies that each of the groups are prepared to effectively manage a nuclear incident.
FEMA and PEMA evaluators joined the Goldsboro EMA team in Goldsboro at the Emergency Operations Center (EOC), throughout the drill.
