Emergency Management works with our public safety organizations (police, fire, and ambulance), and with the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to ensure that Goshen can rapidly recover from disasters large and small.

Emergency management requires assessing and mitigating hazards, preparing for emergencies, responding to emergencies effectively, and building the capacity to recover.

The mission of the Goshen Emergency Planning Committee is to plan and coordinate public safety training, response, mitigation and recovery for all natural and manmade incidents and events.
