On Wednesday, Canton officials and department heads participated in the 2016 Statewide Governor’s Emergency Planning and Preparedness Initiative Exercise.

On Wednesday, Canton officials and department heads participated in the 2016 Statewide Governor’s Emergency Planning and Preparedness Initiative Exercise, which centered around a prolonged ice storm.

Participants reviewed the town’s Emergency Center Operations, Mutual Aid partnerships, notification systems, equipment resources and shelter capabilities – and discussed the town’s policies and practices before, during and following such an event.

“The statewide event was an opportunity for Canton’s emergency responders (police, fire, EMS, Community Emergency Response Team – or CERT) and town government and school  leaders to exercise their emergency operations plans to determine the town’s readiness to ensure the public’s safety and security,” said Christopher Arciero, who is the town’s police chief and Emergency Management Director. “The Canton community has an expectation that the town will provide a unified response in the event of a severe weather or man-made incident.”
