Emergency Management Description (cont'd)

To accomplish our goals, we work in a close partnership with Bolton's Police Department, Fire Department, Ambulance Department, Department of Public Works, Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Board of Health, local businesses, and local interested citizens groups. We develop and maintain plans for effective response to emergencies, educate the public about preparedness, conduct training exercises and drills for town employees and citizens, and support other Town departments in times of emergencies.

Bolton has adopted the National Incident Management System. We follow an all-hazard approach, preparing for any type of emergency, whether man-made or natural. The links below will take you to pages with further information about each type of disaster for which we are preparing plans.
