Emergency Planning

Under the Emergency Management Act, all municipalities in Ontario are required to develop and implement an emergency management program. Montague's plan was finalized in 2004 and below is the introduction to the plan:

The Emergency Plan for the Township of Montague has been developed to reflect the public safety requirements of our community. The effective use and maintenance of this plan is reliant upon all concerned being aware of its provisions and prepared to fulfill their roles and responsibilities in the event of an emergency. Responsible individuals are expected to participate in emergency training, and exercises which will assist them in the fulfillment of their roles accordingly.

The heads of departments and agencies are expected to develop their own internal notification lists, procedures and contingency plans to fulfill their departmental or agency responsibilities.

Together we work to ensure that our community is prepared to respond to an emergency in the most effective manner possible.
