The Barbour County Commission is pleased to announce Sentinel Complex/Leer South as the first recipient of the Emergency and Crisis Management Exemplary Community Award. Through this award, the Barbour County Commission is recognizing the work being done in Barbour County to prevent, prepare for, respond to and recover from emergencies and disasters. This recognition is for exceptional service and achievement in emergency crisis preparedness.
The development of this program was inspired by Arch Coal’s progressive planning, continued emergency preparedness exercises and community collaboration to make the Little Hackers Creek Slurry Impoundment emergency plan flawless and effective. They were awarded at the October 7th County Commission Meeting.
