The purpose of this plan is to assist municipal officials in carrying out their responsibilities during an emergency.
The nature of our technological society has increased the possibility of man-made disasters. This and the continuing potential of natural emergency situations to disrupt the environment, necessitate the need to plan for such situations. The purpose of an emergency plan is to outline arrangements for dealing with the early stages of the emergency in order to reduce the impact of such incidents on the life and livelihood of the community and its citizens.
It is essential that the plan, in order to be a useful and effective instrument, be kept current and that all agencies or individuals responsible for emergency functions, understand and be kept familiar with their assigned emergency responsibilities.
