Emergency Management Department

Chester's Emergency Management Department is responsible for initiating, coordinating, and sustaining an effective local response to disasters and emergency situations. The Emergency Management Director’s role is to ensure that all Town Departments and participating partners are aware of their responsibilities and work together to provide protective actions prior to, during, and after any type of disaster impacting the community and its residents.

Depending on the nature and severity of the incident, Chester's Emergency Management activities may remain strictly a local activity. In more significant situations, the Town will coordinate with the NH Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to facilitate appropriate preparedness, response, and recovery activities for disasters that affect the Chester community and its residents.
