JEM Mainland North Planning Meeting

September 11, 2017 | 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Canada Games Centre
26 Thomas Raddall Drive

Joint Emergency Management (JEM) Mainland North

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.


Neighbours helping neighbours

In the critical hours following a crisis situation, while local and provincial response agencies are dealing with the immediate and urgent needs of the municipality, residents in affected communities need to be prepared to help themselves and to assist their neighbours, who may have been seriously impacted by the event. We need volunteers from our communities to join together and form a JEM so we are proactively prepared to deal with an emergency.


The next planning meeting is scheduled for:

Monday, September 11th, 2017
CGC Arts & Crafts Room


Pre-registration is preferred but not necessary. Send an email with your name and contact information to engagemainlandnorth@gmail.com. You will receive a confirmation email. Or, feel free to join us the night of the event.
