With a comprehensive Emergency
Plan (PDF) in place, the City of Toronto
is prepared to effectively handle all emergencies. The Emergency
Plan details the methods in which the City mobilizes its resources
during a crisis and ensures all City organizations, emergency response
services, and key agencies are fully
aware of their respective roles and responsibilities during an emergency.
The goal is to respond and reduce the impact of a public emergency
and restore the municipality to a normal state as soon as possible.
Toronto Emergency Plan
The Basic Plan outlines how City agencies will respond to, recover from, and mitigate the impact of a disaster. The Basic Plan contains sections that describe legal authorities, planning assumptions, concept of operations, operational life cycle, agency responsibilities, and the preparedness cycle.
Operational Support Functions
Operational Support Functions (OSFs) are supporting documents to the Emergency Plan and are updated on a regular basis. They contain the structure and framework for integrated support by lead and supporting agencies to respond to emergencies. The OSFs can be stand-alone documents or grouped depending on the nature of the emergency.
Risk Specific Plans
Risk-Specific Plans are also supporting documents to the Emergency Plan. They contain specific response plans for hazards that may pose a threat to the City of Toronto. These Plans reflect the City’s Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (HIRA).
