1. Introduction 

This plan is to provide direction for a response to an emergency affecting the Town of Nokomis.  It is important that the Mayor, Reeve, Council Members and those persons who will be responding to an emergency know the contents of this plan.

The elected officials will direct and control emergency operations at all times through the implementation of this plan.

This plan may be implemented in whole or in part, with or without a Declaration of a Local Emergency.  Use of the Emergency  Powers found in Section 10 of this plan, requires a Local Emergency to be declared.

In the event that a Local Emergency is to be declared see Section 9.

2. Aim

The Town of Nokomis Emergency Plan will be implemented to prevent or limit:

* The loss of life;

* Harm or damage to the safety, health or welfare of people; or

* Damage to property or the environment

* Continue and/or restore essential services.

This emergency plan does not apply to those day-to-day situations, which are dealt with by the Fire Coop, Police or Emergency Medical Services.

An emergency, by its very nature, requires an immediate response from various agencies acting on behalf of the Town of Nokomis, a town, whose resources are exceeded in meeting the needs of evacuees, from another community, may declare a Local Emergency to acquire resources to meet those needs.

3. Hazard Analysis

The Town of Nokomis may experience the following emergencies(but not be limited to) the following emergencies based upon the following ratings.

A. The severity of the Accident from #1 least severe to #5 most severe/castastrophic.

B. The probability or likehood of it occurring with #1 being the  least probable to #5 being the most probable. When assessing probability one must take into account the number of times the event takes place per day, month, year and the number of accidents that happened in the last 15 to 20 years in the particular rated category. E.g the number of trips that dangerous goods are hauled through or past town. Probability increases with an increase in trips. The top speed of the vehicle(s) is also a major factor.

Note: Some of the catergories can be interrelated. E.g. the smoke from a rail disaster(or any fire) can potentially be extremely severe which may reqire an evacualtion of part or the entire town.
