Prevention and preparedness are key goals for Emergency Management teams across Ontario. This enables staff to have a plan in place well in advance of any type of disaster or general multi-level emergency.
Emergency Management Ontario has guidelines and processes in place to assist Municipalities with pre-planning and proper steps to follow when the unthinkable does happen. Pre-planning is key to ensuring response and recovery strategies to maximise safety and security of Ontario and its residents.
The County of Peterborough Emergency Plan ensures the co-ordination of municipal, private and volunteer services in order to assist in organizing effective response and support to emergency situation. Our plan also allows for co-ordinated emergency support to municipalities in the event of an emergency.
