Our Program

The City of Pickering Community Emergency Management Program identifies responsibilities and outlines a plan of action for the efficient deployment and coordination of City services, support agencies and personnel during major emergencies in order to accomplish the following priorities:

  1. Protect and preserve life, property and the environment during emergencies;
  2. Minimize the effects of the emergency on the City of Pickering and its citizens; and
  3. Restore essential services as quickly and safely as possible.
