Gallatin County Emergency Management

Current Information

Would You Be Notified?

Most people in today’s world are in a constantly connected state. In the emergency management world this makes spreading important information very quick. However the flip side is ensuring that our community is getting factual information from the official source can sometimes be challenging with everything else be passed around. In addition, we surprisingly still face the emergency alerting challenge of, “How do we notify people who are asleep?”
To help emergency officials in Gallatin County quickly and accurately notify affected communities of emergencies we launched the Community Notification System last summer. This system allows officials to quickly target a defined area with emergency information as well as immediately push the information to social media and affiliated systems. However, ensuring you receive immediate information directly from officials requires a little time on your part.
By spending 5 minutes registering in the Community Notification System you’ll ensure that we can alert you about the locations you care about. When you register you tell us what locations you care about and how you want to be notified (phone call, text message, smart phone app and more). So, take a couple minutes and visit Alerts.ReadyGallatin.com and register, then get your friends and family to register too.
If we can’t reach you, we can’t alert you!

River Channel Migration Zone Mapping Meeting

East Gallatin River

The draft report and maps for the channel migration & flood hazard mapping project are ready for the Gallatin and East Gallatin Rivers!

Tony Thatcher & Karin Boyd will be taking us on a trip down these important, dynamic waterways and talking about how those rivers function, some highlights of their discoveries during mapping, how and why the maps were developed, and how these maps are being used.

We will be looking for landowner/stakeholder feedback on the maps and reports for accuracy, and anything that is happening on the rivers that we may have missed.  Within the next week or so, you will receive a digital copy of the drafts to review prior to the meeting.  The draft report and maps will then be at the Gallatin Conservation District office for you to review and make recommendations if needed before the final products are produced.
