March 23, 2018 - Twiggs County Courthouse Receives Stop the Bleed Training and Courthouse Kits

On Friday, March 23, 2018, the employees of the Twiggs County Courthouse were trained on a national initiative called Stop the Bleed. Stop the Bleed is a training program to teach anyone how to stop life threatening bleeding in an emergency situation. It does not require the attendee to have any prior medical training. The training is simple and will allow those trained to feel confident in their skills to react in real life situations.
Stop the Bleed is no stranger to Twiggs County. In 2016, Twiggs County Comprehensive Middle High School was part of the pilot program for Stop the Bleed. In 2017, the training was put into action by a teacher to intervene in an incident at the school. As a result, the entire Twiggs County Public School District was trained on Stop the Bleed in 2017.

As part of a grant received by the North Central Health District in Macon, GA, each county courthouse in its district is eligible to receive a set of bleeding control kits to mount in the courthouse. The only requirement is that 5-7 staff members must be trained on how to use the kits. From the collaborative efforts of Twiggs and Houston County Health Departments, North Central Health District, Twiggs County EMA, and County Administrator Kelvin C. Lewis, 17 employees were trained.

Welcome

Twiggs County is a beautiful land of pleasant contrasts contained within our 360 square miles and also has distinction of being the geographic center of the state. Twiggs County has a major interstate running through the heart of the county which is I-16. I-16 gives us easy access to both Savannah and Macon. We now have two industrial parks, one of 150 acres and the other 500 acres, at the intersection of I-16 and Hwy 96.

Our county contains the flat pine woods associated with South Georgia and the gentle rolling hills of the Piedmont in the northern end of the county. Located along the Fall Line, we have been blessed with an abundance of kaolin. The kaolin industry, along with forestry and farming, sustained the county's economy throughout the 20th Century. Twiggs County has a current population of 9,023 according to the 2010 U.S. Census Bureau.

The present county seat and courthouse is in Jeffersonville. The 100 year old courthouse built in 1902-03, in Romanesque Revival style architecture, recently underwent major renovation and substantial expansion.
