The Town has developed a comprehensive Emergency Plan to assist staff, emergency personnel, council and residents in the event of a catastrophe.

The Plan would be immediately put into action if there was a flood, forest fire, terrorist attack, civil disturbance, or any other disaster caused by nature or man.

The Town’s Plan is tested once a year to ensure that everyone knows what to do if a disaster occurs. The Plan outlines the team leader, roles and responsibilities of the commanding group as well as all the necessary arrangements at the Emergency Operations center.

With the assistance of the Plan, the Emergency Operations Control Group will manage the situation in an organized fashion and will keep the public abreast of important information and instructions.

It is the Town’s hope that the Emergency Plan will never need to be implemented, however if it is, the Town will be ready! You can do your part as well by preparing as best you can for your family.
