All Ontario municipalities must have an emergency management program, according to the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act. These programs must include:

  • Emergency plans
  • Training programs
  • Training exercises
  • Public education

Since 2004, the Township of Scugog has successfully met these regulations.
