The broad objectives of the Municipal Emergency Management Plan are to implement measures to prevent or reduce the causes or effects of emergencies, manage resource allocation in response to emergencies, manage the support offered from adjoining municipalities and assist the community in recovery efforts.
The Municipal Emergency Management Plan details the arrangement for the management of municipal resources and coordinating community support during the response and recovery phases.
The plan includes:
- emergency relief to controlling authorities and affected persons during the response phase.
- supplementary supply (resources) to control and relief agencies during response and recovery phase.
- assistance to agencies during the response to and recovery from emergencies.
- an assessment of the impact of the emergency.
- guidelines for working with the Department of Human Services during response and recovery phase.
Municipal Emergency Management Plans are routinely audited every 3 years.
