Emergency Management Team
The Town of Fairfield's Emergency Management Team includes the First Selectman, the Fire Chief (who is the Town's Emergency Management Director), the Police Chief, DPW Director, top officials and staff of other Town agencies and the Superintendent of the Fairfield Public Schools. The Town’s Emergency Operations Center, located at Police Headquarters, may be opened when necessary.
Depending upon the incident, representatives from Utility companies, CERT, non-governmental agencies such as the Red Cross, and others may be invited. Communication lines are opened with Connecticut DEMHS Region 1 in order to both receive information from the State and to transmit local situational information to the State. Requests for State and Federal assistance also go through this channel.
