Emergency Management

The Emergency Management Response Plan was brought into place to help avoid and/or reduce the impact of any sort of Emergency that can affect our townships. This is organized by an appointed group of people that have the necessary knowledge and qualification to help residents during any emergency situation. This year the Townships of Casey, Hudson and Kerns have come together and established a Joint Community Emergency Management Response Plan to assure simplicity and efficiency when dealing with an emergency. It is imperative to have an emergency kit in your house if ever there was an emergency. Listed  below are some examples you can put in your own survival kit.
