Bryan County declares state of emergency in advance of Ian
Bryan County

Bryan County Commissioners declared a state of emergency Wednesday afternoon in advance of Hurricane Ian, which is expected to impact Georgia to some degree. 

Here's the press release: 

Bryan County has declared a state of emergency in anticipation of potential impacts of Hurricane Ian. In the event of hurricane damage, the emergency declaration allows the Bryan County Board of Commissioners will have the necessary tools to respond quickly and ensure a speedy recovery. This also allows the County to request resources such as equipment and money for response and recovery, if necessary.

 This is the first step taken by local governments in the event of a potential disaster. Georgia Governor Brian Kemp has already signed a similar declaration for the state that opens up resources and aims to prevent price gouging.

 Atlantic Waste will collect garbage cans as normal on Thursday, September 29, 2022, but will start collections at 4:00 a.m. on Friday. Those with Friday pickup should put cans on the street on Thursday night. After your pickup time, secure your garbage can and other items that can blow around in the high winds.
