Emergency Preparedness

Emergency Preparedness Management is a community-wide effort to managing public safety during large scale emergencies and disasters. This is done through an organized and structured effort to address:

Mitigation – managing or removing the things that create a hazard
Preparedness – being ready for an emergency when it happens
Response – working to protect life, property and the environment when an emergency occurs               Recovery – repairing the damage, learning from what happened, and making improvements

Emergency Preparedness involves everyone in St. Francois Xavier – citizens, families, first responders, municipal government, community groups, the provincial government, and community organizations. Everyone has a role to play before, during, and after an emergency.

The Emergency Management Team is responsibility for overall emergency preparedness activities including training, education, disaster exercises, providing public information, response & mitigation to an emergency incident. An important component of emergency preparedness is to provide training to volunteers and conduct disaster exercises to test our Emergency Plan and the Emergency Operations Centre. 

If a major emergency occurs in St. Francois Xavier, our team is dedicated to providing residents with the best Emergency Management system available. Our Emergency Preparedness program is based on a team approach. Our approach is to bring community partners together so we make use of all available resources and make decisions that respond to the most important priorities.
