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 maximize safety and security of Ontario and its residents.
