By Jennifer Emert - bio | email ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Mayors from around south Georgia joined Albany Mayor Willie Adams to talk about emergency planning and how the region can better respond to a disaster.
Adams hosted mayors and council representatives from 10 towns to talk about how they can share emergency resources.
Parrott Mayor Ed Wade said it's important for smaller towns to know where they can turn for help when trouble strikes.
"We have to rely on the county's resources to a tremendous extent, but also the resources from out of the county from Webster County which is north of us and then Dougherty and Lee County."
Mayors say they came up with a lot of questions to talk about with their Emergency Management Directors.
