The Coventry Emergency Management (CEMA) is a comprised of members of Town Government, Department heads from all Town agencies, Police and Fire personnel who are charged with planning for and managing a coordinated “all hazards” response that our community may encounter. Examples of these hazards range from hurricanes and floods to biological events, chemical spills and large civic events.
The Coventry EMA is led by Coventry’s Emergency Management Director, Chief Frederick Heise of the Coventry Police Department and Deputy Director, Chief Frank Brown of the Hopkins Hill Fire District. During critical events the Director and Deputy Director will coordinate our community’s response with state and federal agencies such as RIEMA, the Rhode Island Dept. of Health, FEMA, and the National Weather Service as well as private entities such as National Grid and the Red Cross to best serve our citizens. This page will contain information pertaining to preparedness, storm response and community outreach programs available to our citizens. We have also added helpful links to the aforementioned agencies to provide additional information for those interested.
