The safety of citizens, property, and the environment is critical. But in the event of an emergency, safety is much more challenging to ensure. It’s exactly why Saint John has an Emergency Management Organization (SJ-EMO) - dedicated to maintaining resident safety and minimizing the impact of emergencies. The SJ-EMO coordinates emergency planning, response, and recovery to natural and man-made disasters for the City of Saint John.
The SJ-EMO works cooperatively with a wide range of partners, including the citizens of Saint John. Our vision is for the City to be a disaster-resilient and sustainable community in which we cultivate and create a community-based emergency preparedness culture. Together, through education, communication, planning and action, we can face the unexpected with confidence.
