Department of Emergency Management Letter Sept. 18 PDF Print E-mail

September 18, 2018

Citizens of Wythe County

Florence has moved North and away from Virginia. Although some of the effects are still in the county, we have survived with minor issues. Our hearts and prayers are with the communities of the Carolinas and Virginia that were so greatly impacted by this storm.

Wythe County would like to take a moment to thank all of its citizens for being prepared and making preparation to be safe during this storm. It takes everyone in the county working together to provide the safest community that we can. Thank you for being prepared.

Wythe County would also like to thank the First Responders (Firefighter and EMS), Law Enforcement Offices (Town Police and Sheriff’s Office), Public Works, and County and Town officials that helped in staying prepared and keeping the community informed. Although their work may have been unseen by the communities, they were prepared and ready to act within a moments notice to provide the best services for the citizens of Wythe County.

Moving forward our county has a lot to be proud of and looking forward, should feel comfortable knowing that Wythe County will be prepared for any emergency that we face as a community. Again, thank you for all of your hard work.


Curtis Crawford

Emergency Management Coordinator
