Emergency Services

Click links for additional info:   Documents  

Emergency services are readily available in Chisholm Township. We have 9-1-1 service, as well as Ambulance, Fire and Police.
 
9-1-1 provides instant access to emergency services.  It should be used for immediate police, fire and ambulance response in a life threatening situation.  It’s important that the public use the system correctly.  If the service is flooded with non-emergency calls, then it will be difficult for people with real emergencies to get through in a life or death situation.
 
Do not call 9-1-1 to locate relatives, to ask about the availability of gas at local pumps, to find out the location or availability of shelters or other services during an emergency, but,
 
Do call 9-1-1 when a situation requires the immediate response of police, firefighters and/or ambulance personnel in a life threatening situation.
 
Emergency Management
 
Chisholm Township has an Emergency Plan to be utilized in an emergency situation.  The aim of this plan is to make provision for the extraordinary arrangements and measures that may have to be taken to protect the health, safety, welfare, environment and economic health of the residents, businesses and visitors of the Township when faced with an emergency situation.
 
Copies of this Plan are available at the Township Office or at the bottom of this page.
 
Members of the Emergency Measures Committee are as follows:
Matt Plant, Chair and CEMC; Leo Jobin, Mayor; David Hodgins, Councillor; Linda Ringler, Clerk-Treasurer; Real Gauthier, P.W.S., Robert Groulx,  Alice Lauzon, Garth Pigeau, Lorena Thompson, and Jessica Scarfone.
