The Township has created and follows an Emergency Management Plan which ensures the Township can act promptly in the event of an emergency.
The Township’s Emergency Management Plan provides arrangements and procedures regarding any emergency affecting, or likely to affect, the people and property situated within the Tay Valley Township border.
The Tay Valley Township Emergency Management Plan:
• Protects the health, safety, welfare and property of our citizens
• Identifies and develops mechanisms and arrangements for preparedness, recovery and risk reduction
• Establishes proper arrangements and procedures
Emergency response operations by Tay Valley Township are to be carried out when an emergency or disaster has occurred requiring a coordinated response. It does not apply to those day-to-day situations normally dealt with by municipal emergency services.
In the event of an emergency or disaster, the Reeve may declare a state of local emergency with respect to all, or a portion of, the Township. When in the opinion of the Reeve, an emergency no longer exists for which a state of local emergency was declared, she/he may terminate the declared state of local emergency.
Preparedness includes developing effective response plans and alerting systems, conducting training exercises, implementing emergency communications and mutual aid agreements as well as making resource management arrangements and coordinating a public education/information program.
