Recent weather events have caused unprecedented destruction in various areas of our province. Now, more than ever, communities must have emergency plans in place to protect residents, property, and municipal infrastructure.

Your Emergency Management Organization meets on a regular basis to reassess existing plans, to develop new plans based on identified hazards analysis, and to test the plans.

We are regularly looking for residents who are at least 18 years of age who are available for regular monthly meetings on the 3rd Tuesday evening of each month from 7 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. and who can be available to work in the Emergency Management Operations Centre when required. Interested residents will have a strong desire to work behind the scenes to provide support to frontline responding agencies. Training will be provided.

To indicate your interest or to receive further information, please contact the Fire Chief / EMO Director :
