Regional Emergency Management Committee

The Regional Emergency Management Committee (REMC) coordinates and supports regional all-hazards emergency planning and preparedness activities to improve the region’s ability to prepare for, respond to, and recover from all disasters. REMCs were created by the Vermont Legislature (20 V.S.A. § 6), and the Vermont Division of Emergency Management developed guidance documents describing how REMCs are to function. View the REMC Bylaws for more information.

The REMC coordinates with statewide emergency planning and has a seat on the Statewide Local Emergency Planning Committee, the Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (THIRA)/Stakeholder Preparedness Review (SPR), and the Integrated Preparedness Plan Workshop (IPPW).
