What is an Emergency?
Emergencies are defined as situations or impending situations caused by forces of nature, accident or an intentional act that constitutes a danger of major proportions to life and property. They affect public safety, meaning the health, welfare and property, as well as the environment and economic health of the Township of North Stormont.
Emergency Preparedness Plan
In order to protect residents, businesses and visitors, the Township of North Stormont requires a coordinated emergency response by a number of agencies under the direction the Community Control Group. These are distinct arrangements and procedures from the normal, day-to-day operations, carried out by emergency services.
The Emergency Preparedness Plan establishes a Community Control Group, as well as identifies essential services to be engaged once an emergency is declared. The Plan provides a structure for the effective implementation, coordination and administration of extraordinary actions, arrangements or measures that will be taken in the event of an emergency.
