Emergency Management & Prepardness 

If you are experiencing an emergency - call 911!

The Emergency Management Committee is comprised of the leaders of each Department. The Town Administrator is designated as the Emergency Manager and facilitates the connection between internal and external operations. Emergency Management covers a wide range of events. Being prepared for an emergency can be the difference between life and death.

Each department focuses on their area of expertise, providing the Town with a comprehensive defense to emergencies. We encourage everyone to do their part to be educated on potential risks and take precautionary measures to prepare yourself for circumstances beyond one's control.
