By-law to Adopt Emergency Management Program and Emergency Response PlanTogether we work to ensure that our community is prepared to respond to an emergency in the most effective manner possible.

Emergency Preparedness

The Town of Smiths Falls is vulnerable to emergencies such as tornadoes, floods, winter storms and major transportation accidents. Emergency preparedness by residents and the Town of Smiths Falls will help to minimize the impact that an emergency could have on our community.

The Town of Smiths Falls has an Emergency Response Plan and a Community Control Group that annually performs training, risk analysis and emergency exercises.

Families and businesses can prepare for emergencies by developing a 72 Hour Kit which will assist in dealing with basic needs during an emergency.

72 Hour Kit – Suggested items

Please visit the Emergency Management Ontario Website to learn more about preparing a 72 hour kit and for information and tools to prepare your family and pets for an emergency.
