A message from Mayor Waye Mason
Joint Emergency Management (JEM) team | Wednesday, 30 September 2015 at 6pm, Halifax Central Library Lindsay Children’s Room
Come to our information meeting about setting up a Joint Emergency Management (JEM) team. This is a community-based volunteer organization that works with HRM’s EMO. This is great way for involved citizens to educate friends, family and neighbours in preparedness for emergencies. JEM’s motto is “neighbours helping neighbours”. During emergencies, residents in affected communities need to be prepared to help themselves and to assist others.
We are really hoping some members of faith based groups are interested, as our friends in rural Halifax have said, for this to work we need both people and buildings to help make our community a safer place!
