The Municipality of Port Hope is committed to a process of emergency planning and response that will help to ensure the safety of its residents in the event of an emergency. The Municipality has an Emergency Plan which details how the Municipality will respond to various emergencies.
Once an emergency has been declared by Municipal officials, the Emergency Plan will be implemented. This is done under the leadership of the Municipal Emergency Control Group, a group of senior officials, whose primary task is to safeguard the health, welfare, safety and property of residents and to oversee the return to normal conditions.
Every citizen has a responsibility to be prepared for an emergency. Every family should have a plan and sufficient supplies to last for a minimum of 72 hours.
