Whenever an emergency occurs, which affects the lives and property of citizens, the initial and prime responsibility for providing immediate assistance rests with the local municipal government.
The emergency plan is designed to ensure the co-ordination of municipal, private and volunteer services in an emergency to bring the situation under control as quickly as possible. The emergency plan of the County of Peterborough provides co-ordinated emergency support to municipalities in the event of an emergency.
