Emergency Operations Plan
Lower Saucon Township has an Emergency Operations Plan which outlines how the Township coordinates with other local, County, State and Federal agencies in the event of an emergency.

In the event of a natural or human caused emergency or disaster, the overall responsibility for decision making rests with the Township Council. The Township Council, through its Emergency Management Coordinator (EMC), may declare a local emergency upon finding that a disaster has occurred or is imminent.

When a local emergency is declared, the Emergency Management Coordinator will activate an Emergency Operations Center (EOC) to coordinate the management of community wide resources (police, fire, EMS, public works, food, shelter, etc.) with various County, State and Federal agencies to appropriately respond to the emergency event.
