The Addison County Regional Emergency Management Committee (REMC) is made up of Local Emergency Management Directors, or a designee, from each municipality in the region. Representatives from fire departments, emergency medical services, law enforcement, media, transportation, hospitals, the department of health district office, organizations serving vulnerable populations, and any other interested public or private individual or organization, are welcome to attend and participate!
The REMC coordinates with Vermont Emergency Management (VEM), the State Emergency Response Commission (SERC) / new Statewide LEPC on Hazards preparedness planning and activities. The Addison County RPC provides administrative support, including taking meeting minutes, with funding from VEM. REMCs have access to competitive grant funding (e.g. Homeland Security, Hazard Mitigation).
The REMC is required to update a regional plan that includes:
- Regional contact information,
- Regional resources,
- Regional mutual aid agreements
