Emergency Management Agency
The Emergency Management Agency is operated by all volunteers that are on call for any type of emergency within Fall River, or any surrounding communities that request assistance through the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA).
EMA is primarily is self-sufficient though the EMPG Grants.
Our agency is called upon to render our services to our City by the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency during a Citywide Declared Emergency by the Governor of the Commonwealth, the Mayor of Fall River, the Fire Chief, Police Chief or the Emergency Management Director.
EMA also mitigates and puts all plans together for evacuation procedures for private, public, and catholic schools, nursing homes, daycare centers, private and public buildings and facilities in Fall River.
It is the Mission of the Emergency Management Agency/Fire Department Special Service Unit to provide service to our City and the surrounding communities that call upon us for assistance during a Citywide Emergency, Man-made or Natural Disaster.
It is also our intent to protect the lives and property of our residents by mitigating a situation before it occurs by having plans in place for the welfare and safety not only for our citizens but visitors as well.
