Emergency Management

The mission of the Town of Trumbull’s Office of Emergency Management is to provide programs and activities to Trumbull residents and departments to help them prepare for, cope with, and recover from the effects of natural and man-made disasters.  The Office of Emergency Management does this through emergency management planning, preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation. 

The Office of Emergency Management operates under the direction of the Trumbull Police Department. The Director of Emergency Management or designee will mobilize and deploy personnel and resources in the event of an emergency. The Town of Trumbull is committed to being prepared for all types of natural and man-made emergencies such as hurricanes, flooding, ice storms and other large scale emergencies.
