Emergency Management Planning

Did you know that Washington County has had 8 presidentially declared disasters due to flooding alone since 1990, and includes Tropical Storm Floyd in 1999 and Tropical Storm Irene in 2011?  With our ever changing weather patterns, we can expect wetter than normal conditions throughout the year.

The City of Barre has, over the years taken the necessary steps, both required and volunteer, to have plans in place that allow for mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery.  The City must constantly evaluate the infrastructure, including our roads and drainage so that we can handle these now expected hazards.

The City has several plans in place that aid us during disasters, reduce flood damage, mitigation planning to lessen disaster effects and recovery planning.
