Jefferson County Flood Disaster


Advisory: Jefferson County Declares Disaster

For Immediate Release
February 25, 2018


The Jefferson County Commissioners have declared a Disaster in Jefferson County as a result of the Flooding. The Jefferson County Emergency Management Agency has filed an Emergency Declaration with The Indiana Department of Homeland Security.

Yesterday Governor Eric Holcomb declared a disaster in 11 Indiana counties. Jefferson County’s request asks that it be added as an amendment to the existing statewide declaration. This is the first step in the recovery process. A local government cannot apply for or receive any type of state or federal assistance without such an application.

In addition, the Commissioners decreed;

All public offices and employees of Jefferson County are hereby directed to exercise the utmost diligence in the discharge of duties required of them for the duration of the emergency and in execution of emergency laws, regulations, and directives—state and local.

All citizens are called upon and directed to comply with necessary emergency measures, to cooperate with public officials and disaster service forces in executing emergency operations plans, and to obey and comply with the lawful directions of properly identified officers.

All operating forces will direct their communications and requests for assistance and operations directly to the Jefferson County Emergency Management Agency.

If you have questions or need additional information, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
