Emergency Management Team
The Town of Fairfield's Emergency Management Team consists of the Town’s Fire Chief (also the Emergency Management Director), along with the First Selectman and top officials of all Town Agencies and 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, Non-governmental agencies such as the Red Cross, CERT and others may be invited. Communication lines are opened with Connecticut DEMHS Region 1 in order to both receive information from the State and transmit local situational information to the State. Requests for State and Federal assistance also go through this channel.
