Emergency Management & Preparedness

When emergencies occur, whether natural or man-made, the first-line of emergency management is your local (Township) level.  

Therefore, to protect life and property during such emergencies, in events such as severe weather, snow storms, floods, hurricanes, fires, health/medical crises or hazardous chemical spills, Hamilton Township's Office of Emergency Management exists.
