For Communities

Be Better Prepared

Wellington County has many great communities that make it a wonderful place to live, work and play. We seek to promote a safe community with the capacity to cope with hazards and possible disasters. Emergency services such as Police, Fire, Ambulance and other individuals who help prepare, respond, and recover from an emergency, do an incredible job of keeping us safe, but they cannot do it alone.

Education is crucial in ensuring an individual can make a difference in their community and be better prepared. This section provides you with easily accessible information about extreme winter weather such as ice storms or blizzards, extreme summer weather such as tornadoes, wind storms, and extreme heat, and how to keep you and your family safe during all these events, as well as what services are available to you within Wellington County.

Being better prepared will help result in a stronger and more resilient community!
