Emergency Management

Every day the news headlines remind us that the world can be a dangerous place. The Emergency Planning Program at the Middlesex-London Health Unit is constantly working on behalf of the people of Middlesex-London to prepare for and mitigate any possible emergency.

An emergency is a situation or impending situation that constitutes a danger of major proportions that could result in serious harm to persons or substantial damage to property and that is caused by the forces of nature, a disease or other health risk, or an act whether intentional or otherwise.

    The Emergency Response Plan is the document that the Middlesex-London Health Unit will turn to for a planned, organized response to an emergency. It provides the resources and information needed by the Medical Officer of Health and the Health Unit to evaluate human and environmental impacts of an event. Due to privacy and confidentiality, some sections have been removed from this document for online viewing.
