SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Chatham Emergency Management Agency hosted a conference on Tuesday, providing the latest up to date information and guides for when a hurricane may threaten the area.

Workshops ranged from first responder safety, volunteer management, and emergency public information to sheltering needs. The workshops were held by experts in the process of planning for storms.

"They're all on the same sheet of music, and that's why we've done this with Coastal Georgia as opposed to just Chatham County," said CEMA Director Clayton Scott. "So that we all know what we're going and we're all on the same plans."

More than 400 participants from the region took part in the day-long conference.
