Welcome to the West Hants Regional Municipality’s Emergency Management & Protective Services page.
Emergency management is the managerial function charged with creating the framework within which communities reduce vulnerability to hazards and cope with disasters.
Emergency management seeks to promote safer, less vulnerable communities with the capacity to cope with hazards and disasters.
The ultimate purpose of emergency management is to save lives, preserve the environment, and protect property and the economy. The protection of life is of paramount importance.
