Public Safety

The level and type of municipal mitigation, preparedness and response capabilities needed to reduce or eliminate long-term risks to people, property and the environment from hazards and their subsequent effects is a major concern of municipal governments. Municipal public safety initiatives can encompass fire and police protection, bylaw enforcement, building inspections, emergency planning, street lighting and the monitoring of water and sewage treatment. Meeting public safety needs and legislated requirements is another key indicator of municipal sustainability. According to the municipal Acts, municipalities are to develop and maintain a safe and viable community.
