 Business Preparedness
In December of 2013, Wellington County and local municipalities, experienced a severe ice-storm causing wide spread power outages lasting from 3 hours to 14 days in some areas. Wellington County provides essential services to the public and recognize these services must continue to be delivered during a disruption regardless of the nature of the hazard. The County is currently finalizing plans for all essential departments and has adopted the name, Service Continuity Plan, which is also known as a Business Continuity Plan.

The development of the Service Continuity Plan under the Emergency Management Division, has led to many useful resources and information pertaining to Business Preparedness.
