Emergency Preparedness


The Municipality of Temagami has an Emergency Response Plan that was passed by By-law 05-628.  This plan is reviewed and exercised annually to improve our emergency preparedness.  However, no communcity is equipped to handle all the demands of a catastrophe.

Individuals and families are encouraged to be prepared and plan for emergencies on a personal level as well. 


Find out by taking Emergency Managment Ontario's Emergency Preparedness Challenge.

IBC Cheque Presentation

Temagami Wins Emergency Preparedness Award

Thanks to those Temagami residents who took the Emergency Management Ontario’s (EMO) Preparedness Challenge during the month of May 2011, Temagami had the highest participation rate for towns of our size. The Municipality received a $2000 cheque from the Insurance Bureau of Canada to use to enhance our emergency preparedness programs and a plaque from EMO. While the Municipality does have a Municipal Emergency Management Plan, and staff undergo regular training, the best line of defense is for individuals and families to prepare for emergencies on a personal level. Whether they are due to natural disasters, such as forest fires or ice storms, human caused or technology related, emergencies do happen. We encourage those who have yet to prepare on a personal level to join those who have already taken steps to prepare and together we can improve the resilience of our community.

Temagami's Community Emergency Management Coordinator (CEMC) and CAO, Patrick Cormier presents a cheque on behalf of IBC to Councillor Lorie Hunter, Chair of the Protection to Persons and  Property Advisory Committee.
