Plan, Prepare, Respond, Recover
The mission of the Truro Emergency Management Team is to develop and maintain a comprehensive plan to prepare for, respond to, and recover from, all types of major emergencies that might occur in Truro.
In order to accomplish this mission, the Truro Emergency Management Team meets to identify potential events, both natural and man made, that might put residents' lives and property at risk. Once identified, plans are developed to reduce opportunity for the event to occur, how to prepare for when the event does occur, how to respond to the event, and finally how to recover from the event after it does occur.
The Truro Emergency Management Team is led by the Emergency Management Director and is comprised of Town staff from various departments.
