Emergencies happen every day in our communities and most situations are effectively managed by our local emergency response agencies – paramedic, police and fire services.
It is critical that every municipality be prepared for potential high-risk incidents. These emergencies can be categorized by cause – natural, human-caused or technological – and have the potential to threaten our health, safety, environment, property, critical infrastructure and economic stability.
Manitouwadge is a leader in community emergency preparedness with an active Emergency Management group. Our Emergency Response Plan is up to date and our Emergency Control group members exercise their roles regularly.
Within Ontario, municipalities share the common goal to create disaster resilient communities. You can do your part by being well prepared both at home and in your workplace. With just three easy steps – know the risks; make a plan and prepare a 72-hour Emergency Survival Kit you can help yourself should the need arise.
