Emergencies are defined as situations or impending situations caused by forces of nature, accidents or an intentional act that constitutes a danger of major proportions to human life and property. They affect public safety as well as the environment and economic health of Madoc Township.
In order to protect residents, businesses and visitors, The Township of Madoc Emergency Programming Committee has developed an Emergency Plan which can be provided upon request.
The emergency response plan is designed to outline the response capabilities and strategies for the municipality for any type of emergency that may occur and will be directed and controlled by the Emergency Control Group (ECG) – a group of township employees who are responsible for coordinating the provision of the essential services necessary to minimize the effects of an emergency on the community.
The Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) is located at the Township Recreation Centre, 15651 Highway 62, Madoc.
