Mainland North Joint Emergency Management (JEM) Meeting

January 16, 2018 | 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Canada Games Centre
26 Thomas Raddall Dr.
Halifax, NS B3S 0E2


Mainland North Joint Emergency Management (JEM) Team, under the leadership of EMO, is hosting a presentation on Introduction to Comfort Centre Management. Last week’s storm activated the need for Comfort Centres across the province. Did you know that the Canada Games Centre was opened as a Comfort Centre during the storm’s recovery period? Citizens without power were able to get warm, charged their phones, and get something to eat. Are you interested in local community emergency preparedness and helping in future responses at your local Comfort Centre?

Join Chair Dave Aalders and other community volunteers on Tuesday, January 16th from 6:30pm to 8pm in the CGC Community Centre. Everyone is welcome to attend.

If you have questions, please contact Dave Aaldersat (902) 292-4003 or daalders@ns.sympatica.ca.


What is JEM?

Joint Emergency Management (JEM) is a concept developed by the Halifax Regional Municipality’s Emergency Management Office (EMO), to allow community organizations to prepare for, and respond quickly to, a wide range of emergencies. JEM teams are the community volunteers of EMO. In times of crisis, EMO may activate JEM Support Centres (JSC) to coordinate response with humanitarian agencies already engaged in the JEM coverage area. These centres are a facility where trained individuals can meet to provide local input to the Emergency Operations Centre, located in Dartmouth.
