The County has an active Emergency Plan, which is tested on a regular basis. In accordance with Emergency Management Act, the County has achieved the Essential Community Emergency Program Level. The four key components of emergency management are: prevention/mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery.
The County will continue to work to achieve the Enhanced and Comprehensive Program Levels consistent with the legislation.
An emergency is a situation or impending situation caused by the forces of nature, an accident, an intentential act or otherwise that constitutes a danger of major proportions to life or property.
Emergency response begins with you, the individual, then the community, then the province, then the federal government.
Accessible formats of the Emergency Plan are available upon request. Please contact Jennifer Cowan, Accessibility Coordinator to make arrangements. Phone: 519-631-1460 x 167
