Emergency Operations

Mary Anne Daniel, Director

An emergency operations plan is necessary to ensure the protection of the public from the effects of natural and human made disasters.  Duluth Township will utilize and follow the National Incident Management System (NIMS) as a template for response guidelines, in accordance with Homeland Security and Emergency Management requirements.
Duluth Township has limited capabilities and resources that could be used in response to any major disaster.  These include our facilities, equipment, personnel, and the skills of Township officials, staff and volunteer citizens.  The purpose of this plan is to ensure the effective coordinated use of these resources to:
A. Maximize the protection of life, property and the environment
B. Ensure the continuity of governance
C. Sustain survivors
D. Repair essential facilities and utilities
