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 of people, as well as the environment and economic health of the community.

The population of the Township of Cramahe has approximately 6200 residents.

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

The Township of Cramahe Emergency Management Program Committee developed this Emergency Response Plan. Every official, municipal department and agency must be prepared to carry out assigned responsibilities in an emergency. The response plan has been prepared to provide key officials, agencies and departments of the Township of Cramahe 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. Copies of the Township of Cramahe Emergency Response Plan may be viewed at the Municipal Office. For more information, please contact:
