Town of Manlius, NY
Welcome to the Town of Manlius
 
Critical Response Committee
 
The Town of Manlius is an active participant in a town-wide Critical Response Committee (CRC). Established in the fall of 2001, the mission of the CRC is to coordinate the various emergency services and available resources for a response within the town of Manlius in the event of an emergency.

Goals of the Critical Response Committee (CRC) include maintaining a coordinated multi-agency town-wide critical incident response plan; improving communications between first responders through roundtable discussion and debriefing of local critical incident responses; planning opportunities for local critical response training, scenarios, move-ups and table—top exercises; and suggesting improvements for communications interoperability among first responders.

The CRC has conducted a detailed Hazard Analysis to assist local officials and emergency responders in recognizing hazards that could potentially affect our community. Data from the Hazard Analysis has been used by CRC agencies in determining planning priorities and in building emergency response plans. All CRC agency response plans are incorporated into a 400 page Emergency Operations Manual that is updated periodically and distributed to local officials, first responders, and school districts.

Informing the public of CRC activities, and helping our citizens and businesses learn how to protect themselves from hazards has become an important focus of the Committee. The CRC urges citizens to familiarize themselves with identified local hazards and to develop and maintain a personal disaster preparedness and communications plan and disaster supplies kit. Assistance is available through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), New York State Emergency Management Office (SEMO), and the American Red Cross.
