Emergency Planning Committee

The Walpole Local Emergency Planning committee consists of town and school officials including Fire and Police personnel. The committee meets about every month to coordinate the integral roles each department will be responsible for when responding to an emergency. The Committee has been updating the comprehensive emergency management plan for the Town. Its members have been trained in Incident Command and Disaster Training.

The Walpole LEPC partnered with the Walpole Health Department (with funding from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health) and published a pamphlet, "Live, Learn, Prepare." This pamphlet contains information on dealing with disaster and about the new threats we face. These were distributed through the Walpole School system. More are available in the Health Department office at the Town Hall.
