Emergency Management Plan

The Comprehensive Emergency Management plan is the result of the recognition by both the Town and Village of Stillwater that a comprehensive plan is needed to enhance and guide the community’s ability to prepare, respond and recover from emergency or disaster events. The plan was prepared jointly with members of the volunteer Emergency Management Committee in coordination with Saratoga County and the State Office of Emergency Management. The plan constitutes an integral part of a statewide emergency management program and contributes to its effectiveness. Authority to undertake this effort is provided by both Executive Law Article 2-b and the New York State Defense Emergency Act.

Emergency Pet Shelter Annex (pdf)

Emergency pet sheltering, also referred to as pet-accessible shelters, is designed to meet the needs of people and their animals during emergencies and disasters. Animal owners are responsible for their animals, and should have a disaster plan prepared for their animals in case of evacuations or emergencies. Still, there will sometime situations where emergency animal sheltering is needed such as rapid-onset disasters, massive evacuations where hotels and boarders/vet clinics are full and evacuees who bring their pets with them.
