Charles Schopp serves as administrator of the Livingston County Emergency Services and Disaster Agency (ESDA).  The purpose of the agency is to assist in coordination of functions as may be necessary to prevent, minimize, repair and alleviate injury and damage resulting from any natural or technological cause.  In the event of a disaster, this agency would work as a liaison between the Illinois Emergency Management Agency and local emergency management organizations in coordinating a disaster response and recovery operation.

One of the phases of emergency management is mitigation, and one of the primary mitigation activities in Livingston County is the controlled development of the unincorporated areas that are flood prone to help alleviate damage to property when a flood disaster occurs.  A second phase is preparedness, which can be described as programs or systems that exist prior to an emergency that can enhance response to an emergency or disaster.  An example of preparedness that can especially be of assistance during a personal or family emergency is the Livingston County Rural 911 Addressing System.  This system assists local emergency response providers in responding to needs of the county’s rural citizens.

Unless we see or hear about disasters unfolding through the media, or are personally involved in a disaster, we give them little thought.  However, it is important to know what to do before, during and after a disaster to reduce fear, anxiety, damage, injury and death.  Livingston County ESDA has information available to assist in preparing for fires, floods, tornadoes and winter storms.

Information about ESDA may be obtained at the Regional Planning Commission office at 112 W. Madison St., Pontiac, phone (815) 844-7741.
