City set to adopt new Emergency Management Program tonight

Prince Rupert Fire/Rescue Chief
Dave McKenzie will be named
Emergency Management Coordinator
at tonight's City Council session
The blue print for how the City of Prince Rupert will deal with any emergency situations is now ready for review, with Council members set to receive the final draft of the proposed plan tonight.

Prince Rupert City Council will look over the final details of the major overhaul of the City's Emergency Management Plan, with Council members then asked to vote to put the procedures in place as part of this evening's council session.

The new Management plan provides for a substantial improvement over the previous edition, creating a program which will oversee the maintenance and execution of the plan that will be put to use in the event of a major emergency in the City of Prince Rupert.

The Emergency Management Plan outlines the responsibilities of the City Council when it comes to any emergency situation, as well as to provide some background to the process involved with the Emergency Management Program Committee.

Once City Council reviews the document tonight, it will move to appoint The City's Fire Chief, Dave McKenzie as the City of Prince Rupert's Emergency Management Coordinator.

You can review the full document related to the new Emergency Plan from the Agenda for tonight's City Council session, it can be found from pages 15 to 20.

A preview of some of the other items related to this evening's Council session can be found on our Council Preview item here.
