"Emergency Preparedness Week" May 1-7
You can't predict an emergency but you can Prepare for One!
Emergency Preparedness Week encourages everyone to take three simple steps to become better prepared to face a range of emergencies:
- Know the risks
- Make a plan
- Get an emergency kit
Emergency Management Program
The Township of East Zorra-Tavistock has developed an overall Emergency Management program designed to prepare and assist the community through each phase of an emergency; mitigation and prevention, preparedness, response and recovery.
By-law #2004-10 was passed to provide for the adoption of an emergency management program for the Township of East Zorra-Tavistock.
Working with local responders, health organizations, utilities and other community groups, the program consists of plans and procedures to address potential hazards in our Township. The Township Emergency Response Plan details the responsibilities key officials will take during an emergency situation or an impending emergency.
The Township continually trains, tests and reviews its emergency plans to prepare for the worst, but residents must also take an active role in preparedness.
