"When Tennessee was hit with a record flood, public safety mounted a coordinated response based on strong relationships and effective training. Two days of torrential rains reached totals of more than 19 inches in some areas.[...] Not only does the response to a flood of this enormity require significant manpower, but it also requires reliable and effective emergency communications between emergency response personnel from local, State, and Federal agencies. To achieve this, TEMA [Tennessee Emergency Management Agency] activated its existing communications plans and procedures as they managed the State Emergency Operations Center (EOC)."
