The Regional Emergency Management Organization ( REMO Annapolis) is responsible for providing a prompt and coordinated response to emergencies that occur within its jurisdiction. “Emergency” is ‘an abnormal situation which, in order to limit danger to people, or damage to property or the environment, requires prompt action beyond normal procedures’.
Peacetime emergencies are defined as situations or the threat of impending situations abnormally affecting the lives and property of our society, which by their nature or magnitude, require a coordinated response by a number of agencies, both governmental or private, under the direction of the appropriate elected officials as distinct from routine operations carried out by agencies as normal day-to-day procedures; i.e. – fire fighting, police activities, normal hospital routines.
Peacetime emergencies include floods, hurricanes, windstorms, blizzards, landslides, explosions, aircraft crashes, pandemics, traffic accidents, toxic or flammable gas/chemicals escapes, building or structure collapses, uncontrollable fires, implications of radiation fall-out or the threat of any of the foregoing, in which immediate remedial action will be required by Regional Emergency Management Organization of Annapolis. The REMO Annapolis Peacetime Emergency Planoutlines the method by which such remedial action will be provided.
Annapolis County has a population of approximately 23,000 people (including towns). It is a rural area (3200 km2) encompassing the western portion of the Annapolis Valley adjacent to a relatively large and unpopulated section of mid-western Nova Scotia. The Bay of Fundy delineates the northern boundary, a line from East Margaretsville through Wilmot to a point a few miles east of Springfield is the eastern boundary; from Springfield the southern boundary runs down the centre of Nova Scotia to Kejimkujik National Park from where the eastern confines runs in a northerly direction to Deep Brook.
