Goals & Priorities

Goals and priorities to be achieved in the development of this and similar plans are:

  1. To prevent any major emergency which can possibly be averted.

  2. To minimize the effects and disruptions of those major emergencies which could not be prevented, avoided, or anticipated by:

    1. Preventing or limiting extent of loss of life and injury.

    2. Preventing or limiting damage to property.

    3. Providing for continuity of function, or, failing that, expeditious resumption of operations.

The above goals and priorities may be achieved through application of sound precepts of risk management and crime prevention by those with the mandated authority.
