The Henry County Commissioners working with the Sheriff’s Office, County Highway and Emergency Management make the decision to raise or lower the travel status within the County. Once a decision has been made the Office of Emergency Management updates the IDHS website through a program called WebEOC. Only the Office of Emergency Management has login access to make the changes, but the Office does not make the final decision as to when and to what level, that is a team effort.
The Henry County Sheriff may decide that for public safety a specific level of travel advisory is warranted when the Commissioners are unavailable.
Once the Emergency Management Office receives authorization to change the travel status the information is documented, a public notice is created and the information is emailed to those agencies and entities in our notification list (news media, dispatch centers, emergency services, etc.). The status change is then added to our Facebook page and tweeted to our followers.
It should be noted that occasionally the terminology Indiana Department of Homeland Security (IDHS) uses changes, those changes will be reflected on our local Travel Advisory System as well.
The updated travel map can be found on the IDHS website.
