Mission

Our mission is to utilize effective planning, training and coordination to provide a comprehensive and integrated emergency management system that coordinates community resources to protect lives, property  and the environment through mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery from all natural and man-made hazards that may impact the Town of Thompson.

What We Do

Thompson Emergency Management is responsible for coordinating the activities of all Civil Preparedness-Emergency Management Agency forces, both full time and volunteer, and is responsible for the recruitment and training of needed Civil Preparedness-Emergency Management personnel. The Emergency Management Director assists the Chief Executive in the preparation and updating of Town Emergency Operations Plans and Standard Operating Procedures, maintains contact with the State Civil Preparedness-Emergency Management Area office designated for the Town of Thompson and cooperates with the State Office of Civil Preparedness-Emergency Management in preparation of required reports, procedures, and other necessary paperwork to ensure the Town is receiving all possible funding, equipment, and other benefits available to the Town through State and National Civil Preparedness-Emergency Management.
 
Thompson Emergency Management performs any such other Civil Preparedness-Emergency Management related functions as may, from time to time, be assigned by the Chief Executive of the Town of Thompson.
