Emergency Preparedness

The Mayor and Town Council of Westfield recognize its moral and legal responsibility to provide comprehensive Emergency Management Planning to protect its citizens in the event of a man-made or natural catastrophe.

The Town of Westfield Office of Emergency Management has an Emergency Operating Plan (EOP), which sets forth general policies and procedures to be carried out by specified Town Departments and Agencies in an effort to provide citizens of the Town with an effective and integrated emergency response plan.

Our paramount concern of the plan is for the health, safety and welfare of our citizenry. Our additional concern is to minimize property damage or loss and to a condition of normalcy to the daily lives and activities of the citizens of the Town of Westfield. The role of the Town is as always, to meet Municipal responsibilities to the best of its ability during emergency or disaster.
