EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT

Because most emergencies are local and likely to require a municipal response, the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act and its supporting Ontario Regulation 380/04 require municipalities to develop, implement and maintain emergency management programmes.

The elements of these programmes support emergency preparedness and response activities and include forming a programme committee, maintaining an emergency response plan, and designating a Community Emergency Management Coordinator (CEMC).

The CEMC reports to the Chief Administrative Officer, and ensures continuous training of personnel, and testing and updating of the plans. The CEMC is also responsible for the operation of the Emergency Operation Centre, planning and execution of emergency exercises, and public education.
