Owing to their close geographical proximity and to take advantage of operational efficiencies, the five Municipal units within Lunenburg County share the responsibilities of emergency preparedness, planning, response and recovery whenever possible and appropriate.
It is not the purpose of REMO to be a household name but rather to work silently in the background until such time as it becomes necessary to activate in response to emergency situations.
There are three groups within REMO. The Advisory Committee , the Planning Committee, and a Regional Emergency Management Coordinator who collaborates with an Emergency Management Liaison person from within each municipal unit. REMO members work together to collectively ensure a timely and effective response to emergency events impacting the lives of area citizens.
