Emergency management teams from all over the state are meeting at the Coast Coliseum this week for the Mississippi Preparedness Summit. The summit covers how to prepare for disasters from hurricanes to tornados, as well as to how to assess the damage of those storms. Attendees also get to meet who they may have to work with in the future, which makes it easier to assist each other in times of need.

Hancock County's Emergency Manager, Bryan Adams, says the summit keeps everyone educated and on the same page. Adams says, "It states, what it says, it's preparedness, it’s getting everyone prepared. It has different classes involved in it that will give us vital information that we need to prepare and handle if a situation arises." M.E.M.A. is holding a media conference Thursday at the Coliseum with the National Weather Service to discuss plans for this year's hurricane season.
