The Department of Emergency Management for the City of Danbury continuously receives support and updates for our Emergency Operations Plan from the State of Connecticut Department of Emergency Management and Homeland Security. Events throughout the last decade have redefined emergency response needs and planning at all levels of government. Being proactive in our approach and response to potential emergency events, both natural and manmade, is our priority. Our primary mission continues to be the development of plans, protocols, and procedures that assure the safety of our citizens. The department, with input from local, state, and national agencies, has made significant strides in preparedness, and has created a strong foundation for emergency management in our community.
