Emergency Management is that function of Township government specifically responsible for coordinating our community's response to major emergencies. The Emergency Management Organization is not a replacement for, or an addition to Police, Fire, Rescue, Public Works, or other response units, but a system for coordinating and managing various municipal, volunteer and private resources to effectively prepare for, respond to and recover from a community crisis.
Mission Statement: The mission of Limerick Township's Office of Emergency
Management is to serve the citizens of the Township through effective planning
for natural and man-made disasters. Our goal is to save lives and protect property
through the coordination of an integrated emergency management system with all emergency response organizations, support
services and volunteers. We will be an advocate for greater community efforts,
including educating the general public to mitigate and prepare for potential emergencies. We will support efforts
to train and exercise emergency responders in both the public and private sectors.
We will manage and coordinate efforts toward a rapid recovery from disasters
with an effective disaster assistance program.
It is the governmental policy of Limerick Township to protect lives, property, the environment and the economy during an emergency or disaster. To address these potential threats, the Limerick Township Office of Emergency Management has prepared and maintains an updated comprehensive Emergency Operations Plan. This plan provides the framework upon which Limerick Township prepares for, responds to and recovers from man-made and technological hazards.--> Top of Page <--
