Under Provincial legislation, the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act (EMPCA) , every municipality in Ontario is required to have an Emergency Management Program. The mandate of Halton Region's Emergency Management Program is to enhance the safety of our residents and reduce property damage and economic loss in the event of an emergency. Our program is designed to ensure that Halton is a disaster resilient community that is ready to deal with any potential, imminent or actual emergency situation.
Halton's Emergency Management program takes a comprehensive approach to identifying hazards that are most likely to impact our community. This risk-based approach ensures that the right people and resources are effectively and efficiently directed towards responding to events that could jeopardize the health, welfare and economic stability of the people who live and work in Halton.
Halton's emergency management efforts are supported and sustained by our numerous partners.
In Ontario, an "emergency" is defined as:
A situation or impending situation caused by the forces of nature, an accident or an intentional act that constitutes a danger of major proportion to life and property.
