Official Document: Emergency Response Plan

The Municipality of Callander has an Emergency Response Plan (ERP) in place. Developed by the Municipality’s Community Emergency Management Program Committee (CEMPC), this Plan provides key officials, departments and agencies with important emergency response information – such as the assignment of roles and responsibilities during an emergency – to ensure responses to community emergencies are well coordinated.

It is important that residents, businesses and interested visitors be aware of the Plan’s provisions. You can view the full document by clicking the PDF link under the heading at the top of this panel, and save or print a copy for future reference. Copies of Callander’s ERP may also be viewed at the Municipal Office. For more information, please contact , Fire Chief, at the Hoyt D. Wice Fire Station office in Callander, at (705) 752-2839.
