"What is emergency Planning?"

First let's start with some definitions:
Emergency Planning Mission:
      To ensure that every homeowner is prepared in the event of an emergency or other occurrence that could adversely affect them. Emergency management
      The managerial function charged with creating the framework within which “communities” reduce vulnerability to hazards, cope with and recover from the aftermath of disasters.

Some things we can do together to support disaster preparedness: share useful information, develop community plans that define necessary capabilities that address threats, provide resources, coordinate assistance, and, when required, integrate and synchronize both preparedness and recovery efforts throughout our community.

Many of us plan for emergencies in one way or another. We may give spare keys to neighbors; or in our car, carry an emergency first aid kit, puncture repair kit or a traffic warning triangle.

Planning for emergencies in our community is no different. While not every emergency is predictable, we all can sustain essential functions for unusual events by having a plan in place that addresses predictable events. To sustain essential functions, we start by:

      Defining possible emergencies       Identifying community roles and duties       Identify homeowner capabilities, vulnerabilities and limitations.       Procuring equipment and materials as necessary       Ensuring training and communication

The following pages and links are provided for your information to assist in your participation and, secondly, to serve as an inspiration to solicit your ideas to better prepare the community.
