Thomasville-- Emergency officials in Thomas County are preparing for Hurricane Katrina.

During a meeting Friday afternoon, each municipality coordinated with each other to prepare for the worst. Officials' main concern is keeping a close eye on the storm's track. They say that it could change at any point.

Emergency Management Director Chris Jones adds that the public also needs to prepare as soon as possible. "We would like to ask everyone to be sure they have their list of disaster supplies, their family disaster kits in place, a plan of where they may go," he says.

Conference calls are the main link among EMA officials throughout our region. Besides that, preparations have centered around preventative maintenance, such as gassing-up emergency vehicles and generators.
