The Vision for the Western Piedmont Emergency Management Task force is simple; to keep building on our solid foundation. Currently the Task Force is beginning to forge relationships that will cross State Lines, and grow the task force into a multi state regional entity. The Interstate 85 corridor is a vital transportation link that is the life-line for major cities like Charlotte in North Carolina, and Atlanta, GA.   I-85 is a ribbon of commerce to a multi-state region.
 
North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia also has a series of lakes, dams, along with hydro and nuclear power generation systems. These vital resources provide, not just the energy needs, but much of the quality of life for the region.

By working together to mitigate and respond to any type of disaster, both natural and man-made, we can insure a stable and restorable future for our region.
