Emergency Response Plans.

It seems hard to imagine a disaster taking place in our municipality, however, catastrophic events do happen and the Town of Laurentian Hills is prepared for these situations.

The municipality has adopted an Emergency Response Plan (ERP) for the Town of Laurentian Hills. The Plan makes provisions for the extraordinary arrangements and measures that may have to be taken to protect public safety, meaning the health, welfare, and property, as well as environmental and economic health of the residents, businesses, and visitors when faced with an emergency beyond normal procedures. The Emergency Response Plan has been developed in order to facilitate a timely and effective mobilization of resources in order to respond to an emergency. Every official, municipal department and agency is prepared to carry out assigned responsibilities in an emergency.

Siren testing will be conducted on the first Sunday of each month at 12 noon for the duration of one minute.  The siren testing tone will mimic the Westminister Chimes sound. 

During a real emergency at Chalk River Laboratories, the sirens will sound to initiate either sheltering, evacuation to the Reception Area at the Deep River Arena, or to sound the All Clear as described below:


Tone Definition Duration
Sheltering Continuous rising
and falling sound
Stay indoors, close all doors and windows
Listen to local radio Star 96.0 or CBC FM 92.5
30 min
Evacuation Continuous Sound Leave a potentially dangerous area and follow traffic directions to Deep River 30 min
All Clear Intermittent Termination of the emergency 2 min
