Are you ready Cornwall?
Join us in being disaster aware by taking action to prepare!
September is National Preparedness Month!

The Cornwall Office of Emergency Management is responsible for collecting information about hazardous materials in the community and making this information available to the public upon request. We are also are tasked with developing an emergency plan to prepare for and respond to chemical emergencies in the community. Ways the public will be notified and actions the public must take in the event of a release are part of the plan.

You may contact us to find out more about chemical hazards and what needs to be done to minimize the risk to individuals and the community from these materials.

The following are things you can do to protect yourself, your family and your property from the effects of a hazardous materials incident:

Build an Emergency Supply Kit, see our Build A Basic Kit information under the Prepare section of our site.

Make a Family Emergency Plan. Your family may not be together when disaster strikes, so it is important to know how you will contact one another, how you will get back together and what you will do in case of an emergency. Plan places where your family will meet, both within and outside of your immediate neighborhood.
It may be easier to make a long-distance phone call than to call across town, so an out-of-town contact may be in a better position to communicate among separated family members.
You may also want to inquire about emergency plans at places where your family spends time: work, daycare and school. If no plans exist, consider volunteering to help create one.
Knowing Cornwall’s warning systems and disaster plans, including evacuation routes.
Notify caregivers and babysitters about your plan.
Make plans for your pets.
