To ensure that everyone is prepared for an emergency situation such as fire or flood, we have developed a GSBC Emergency Management Plan for the entire municipal area.
The plan is frequently reviewed to ensure accuracy, suitability and relevance.
A Dolphin Sands Emergency Management Sub-Plan has also been developed to address situations relative to the Dolphin Sands area. Emergency Management Sub-Plan This plan is currently under review.
