Disasters can strike anywhere, and often without warning. They can take on many forms - Hurricanes, Earthquakes, Tornadoes, Floods, Toxic Spills, and even Acts of Terrorism. Disasters can build gradually over days and weeks, or strike suddenly with no time to prepare.

Unfortunately every year, millions of Americans will face disasters, and the terrifying consequences that follow. Since its founding, Warwick's EMA primary mission has been to reduce the loss of life and property and to protect Warwick's infrastructure from all types of dangers through a program of mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery.
