Emergency Planning and Preparedness

Emergencies often strike quickly and can happen at any time. It is important to BE PREPARED now to keep you and your family safe in the event of an emergency.

New Brunswick’s Emergency Measures Act stipulates that each municipality must be prepared to handle emergencies. The Village of New Maryland has acted on this responsibility to prepare the community to respond to and recover from disastrous events with the establishment of the Emergency Response Plan Committee (ERPC)

The Village of New Maryland has a detailed Emergency Response Plan and an Emergency Operations Centre (normally functioning as the Council Chamber) which is located at the Village Office, 584 New Maryland Highway.

By-law No. 10: A By-law of the Village of New Maryland Respecting the Establishment and Implementation of an Emergency Response Plan

Village of New Maryland’s Procedural By-law No. 50-2021

BE PREPARED whether it is making an emergency plan, 72-hour emergency kit, emergency evacuation items list, or preparing for chemical spills or release, extreme heat, forest fire, hurricane/tropical storm, pet emergency preparedness, power outage, stress in emergencies, thunder and lightning storm, winter storm and extreme cold.
