Being prepared for an unpredictable event is the shared responsibility of both the town and residents themselves.
The Town of Kentville provides emergency management services at the local level for Kentville residents, and participates in the regional coordination of emergency response with the other municipal units in Kings County. The Town is a partner with the Kings County Regional Emergency Management Organization whose job is to ensure emergency management is coordinated and efficient with regards to procedures, training, and planning exercises.
