The Emergency Management Office is charged with ensuring the safety and security of the residents of Yarmouth Town and Municipality, their property, and the environment, by providing for a prompt and coordinated response to an emergency.
Most emergencies are small and localized in nature, affecting a single person or a small group of people. These are handled by the appropriate emergency services organizations, such as the police or fire services.
But when the impact is broader, affecting a large number of people, the Emergency Management Office steps in. Their role is to plan ahead before an emergency occurs, coordinate the provision of the Town and Municipal resources when an emergency occurs, and assist with analysis and evaluation after an emergency.
