The Emergency Plan for the Town of Deseronto has been developed to reflect the public safety requirements of our community. Together we work to ensure that our community is prepared to respond to an emergency in the most effective manner possible. The Aim of this plan is to protect the health, safety, welfare and property of the citizens of Deseronto, from the effects of a natural, technological or human caused emergency. Deseronto updates its Emergency Response Plan on an annual basis, so that it reflects the procedures that would work best in managing any emergency arising in the Town of Deseronto.
An emergency means a situation or an impending situation caused by the forces of nature, an accident, an intentional act or otherwise that constitutes a danger of major proportions to life or property. A copy of Deseronto’s Emergency Plan is available: Deseronto's Emergency Plan

Is Your Family Prepared?

Pets in Emergencies
In Ontario, each of us is responsible for our own safety and survival during the first 72 hours of an emergency. The responsibility of caring for pets ultimately rests on the owner, including during an emergency. It’s important to develop and create a 72 hour Pet Emergency Survival Kit, much like we would for ourselves and our families.
