The Emergency Management plays a critical role in preparing Vevay, Patriot and Switzerland County for any disaster. We have a Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP) that details our response to all hazards. The Plan is under constant review and is continually updated to reflect changes in policies and procedures. Emergency Preparedness is a community responsibility and you can help. Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT) and Citizen Corps are designed to involve citizens in emergency response. We need your cooperation and supportif we are to minimize the damage caused by a disaster in our community.
