The United Counties of Leeds and Grenville in partnership with its municipalities, townships and the separated municipalities, work in co-operation to provide the required emergency services needed by the residents of the region. Depending on the emergency service, it may be funded, operated and managed by the Joint Services Committee at the County or by the local municipal government of that particular region (e.g., each fire department is funded, operated and managed by the local Municipality/Township).

With respect to Emergency Planning, all tiers of government are required to fund, manage and operate an Emergency Plan according to the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.  Each Emergency Plan will be initiated based on the severity and exposure of the situation.

Alert Ready, Canada's Emergency Alert System, is designed to deliver critical and potentially life-saving alerts through television and radio so you know when to take action to keep yourself and your family safe.
