Emergency Measures Organization
As part of the Town of Canora’s commitment to the safety and well-being of its residents, the Emergency Measures Organization (EMO) Emergency Response Plan has been in place to assess the potential hazards that are most likely to impact the community or regions at large. The plan is modified on an ongoing basis to ensure the most up to date resources and agencies are actively involved in the implementation of the plan should an emergency arise. Canora is also a participating member of the Mutual Aid District.
Mary Huebert is the volunteer coordinator for Canora’s Emergency Measures Organization. She is responsible for maintaining and updating its disaster preparedness planning and resource material. For more information about the plan, contact Mary, EMO Coordinator..
