On behalf of the Municipal Council and staff of the Municipality of the Town of Hemmingford, I am pleased to present our Municipal Emergency Preparedness Plan (MEPP).
This plan is part of the decisions adopted by the municipal council to ensure that we are optimally prepared to deal with the various hazards that may arise in our community, in order to ensure the protection of our citizens in the event of a disaster.
This plan thus makes it possible to meet the needs and requirements of the Ministère de la Sécurité publique (2018), particularly with the objective of complying with the Regulation respecting alert and mobilization procedures and minimum emergency measures to protect the safety of persons and property in the event of a disaster.
It is very important that our municipality be well prepared to respond quickly and effectively to mitigate the impacts of the disaster on the community. I therefore invite all those who have a role to play in the Municipal Civil Protection Organization (CMO) to continue their excellent work, maintain their involvement and improve their knowledge by participating in the meetings, training courses and exercises that will be organized for this purpose.
