Coweta DFCS receives approval for alternate emergency site

The Coweta County Dept. of Family and Children Services (DFCS) got approval last week from the Coweta County Commission to establish an alternate facility at the Coweta County Fairgrounds and Conference Center in the event of a natural disaster or other emergency.

Commissioners by a unanimous vote agreed to the DFCS request after receiving a recommendation from county staff. The approval noted that the use of the fairgrounds would come if the local DFCS facility is rendered unusable by an emergency or natural disaster. The agreement covers calendar years 2013 and 2014.

DFCS had submitted the request as part of its annual emergency planning preparations.
