The Emergency Management/Utilities Department is responsible for the City's emergency preparedness, response and recovery services. The Department's services and programs protect the safety and welfare of the public.
The City of Wilton Manors follows national standards for all-hazards emergency preparedness, including ensuring that employees with emergency preparedness or recovery duties have National Incident Management System (NIMS) training, which is required by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to ensure that the City is eligible for reimbursement of expenses incurred after an emergency event.
Additionally, the City ensures that contracts are current for contractors to assist with post-emergency recovery, such as debris removal and required monitoring.
Before, during and after an emergency event, City officials are in contact with the Broward County Emergency Operations Center on a daily basis to identify Points of Distribution and the availability of emergency commodities, and to resolve other matters that impact municipalities within the region. City Hall includes an Emergency Operations Center that is equipped to allow first responders to participate in conference calls and internet webinars with County and National Weather Service officials.
If you have questions or would like additional information about the City's emergency preparedness, please contact the City's Emergency Management/Utilities Director David Archacki at (954) 390-2190, or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
