Emergency Plan

The West Nipissing Municipality Emergency Management Committee has developed this emergency response plan. Every official, municipal department and agency must be prepared to carry out assigned responsibilities in an emergency.

In order to protect residents, businesses and visitors, the Municipality of West Nipissing requires a coordinated emergency response by a number of agencies under the direction of the Community Control Group (CCG). These are distinct arrangements and procedures from the normal, day-to-day operations carried out by emergency services.

In addition, it is important that residents, businesses and interested visitors be aware of its provisions. Copies of the West Nipissing Municipality Emergency Response Plan may be viewed at the Town Hall.
