Emergency Planning Committee

An Emergency Planning Committee meets on a monthly basis to ensure that all necessary plans are in place to respond quickly and effectively to any emergency that might arise in the community. In addition to regularly reviewing and updating response plans, the Committee also undertakes exercises which provide opportunities for the various agencies to work together as they test the plans.
