Central Jackson County Emergency Management Agency

Central Jackson County Emergency Management Agency
The Central Jackson County Emergency Management Agency (CJCEMA) is a cooperative effort between the cities of Blue Springs, Grain Valley, and Lake Tapawingo in conjunction with the Central Jackson County Fire Protection District.

The member entities provide emergency preparedness planning for their respective jurisdictions and surrounding unincorporated areas.
Federal Emergency Management Agency
Through the coordination of the CJCEMA, a majority of Blue Springs city staff have completed the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) National Incident Management System training. This system ensures that all levels of government, nongovernmental organizations, and the private sector work seamlessly to oversee a major disaster or complicated situation.

Weather Warning Service
Blue Springs residents can also sign up for CodeRED Weather Warning while signing up for CodeRED Emergency Notification System. The CodeRED Weather Warning is a severe weather early warning service that will call your contact number and deliver an alert message shortly after a warning is issued by the National Weather Service for your area.

Community Emergency Response Team Program

The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact our area.

This program trains participants in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations.

Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help.

If you are interested in participating in the CERT program or would like more information, please contact Sergeant Allen Kintz at 816-228-0178.
