The primary purpose of the Emergency Management Agency (EMA) is to protect life and property in the event of a disaster or crisies situation, through a program of mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery.

The Pawtucket Emergency Management Director is Normand Menard and the Deputy Director is John Enright. The Pawtucket EMA works in conjunction with the Rhode Island Emergency Management Agency (RIEMA). In the event of an emergency, Director Menard and Deputy Director Enright would coordinate with RIEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) local and state law enforcement, as well as fire and rescue.

The Rhode Island Department of Health (HEALTH) and the Rhode Island Emergency Management Agency (RIEMA) have joined together to develop a registry for Rhode Islanders with disabilities, chronic conditions, and other special healthcare needs. This system is designed to identify individuals who require special assistance during emergencies. Enrollment in the Registry does not guarantee assistance, but allows first responders to appropriately plan for, prepare for, and respond to the needs of the community. Click Here to enroll.

The Rhode Island Department of Health (HEALTH) maintains the ability to respond to a public health emergency by receiving, distributing, and dispensing medical countermeasures and supplies. HEALTH coordinates with the 39 cities and towns in Rhode Island to be capable of opening points of dispensing in each city and town in order to provide medicines or vaccine to the entire public in a public health emergency. Click Here for more information.
