Emergency Management

EM

Overview

The Wrentham Emergency Management Agency (WEMA) is the town agency responsible for coordinating local, state, regional, federal, volunteer, and private resources during emergencies and disasters in the Town of Wrentham. The Emergency Management Director (EMD) provides the lead command and control for all-hazards that require the coordination of more than one agency for emergency events. WEMA develops plans for effective response to all-hazards, disasters or threats; trains emergency personnel and volunteers to protect the public; provides information to residents; and assists individuals, families, and businesses to mitigate against, prepare for, and respond to and recover from all-hazards emergencies.

Emergency Operations Center

The Emergency Operations Center (EOC), is located at the Wrentham Public Safety building. The EOC is under the command and authority of the Emergency Management Director. The center provides a place for representatives of the Local Emergency Management Team to assemble and coordinate the support of any type of emergency in the Town. The EOC is equipped with computers, communication and monitoring equipment, which enables officials of the various departments and outside agencies to communicate and bring needed resources to the emergency. If additional resources from outside the community are required, Emergency Management will coordinate requests through the center.
