Community Emergency Management

Emergency Management
Emergencies are defined as situations or impending situations caused by forces of nature, accident or an intentional act that constitutes a danger of major proportions to life and property. They affect public safety, meaning the health, welfare and property as well as the environmental and economic health of the Township of Southgate.

In order to protect residents, businesses and visitors, the Township of Southgate requires a coordinated emergency response by a number of agencies under the direction of the Municipal Control Group. These are distinct arrangements and procedures from the normal day-to-day operations carried out by emergency services.

The Township of Southgate Emergency Management Committee developed an emergency management plan. Every official, municipal department and agency must be prepared to carry out assigned responsibilities in an emergency. The emergency management plan has been prepared to provide key officials, agencies and departments of the Township of Southgate important emergency response information related to:

• arrangements, services and equipment; and
• roles and responsibilities during an emergency.

In addition, it is important that residents, businesses and interested visitors be aware of its provisions.
