THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

Thomasville first responders attended two weather advisory meetings Wednesday.      

They want everyone to stay on top of the Tropical Storm that could bring up to 7 inches to Thomas County.

Emergency management officials asked every agency if they needed any supplies - all of them said they were ready.

Most agencies are bringing in extra staff to make sure they are able to assist all needs during the severe weather.

"From an emergency management standpoint and public safety all of our staff are gearing up to work continuously through possibly 12 hour shifts and responding to calls and try to keep our road ways open and those types of things," said Chris Jones, EMA Director.

They have sand bags available for anyone who needs them.

They are at the county fire station off County Farm Road.
