Welcome
The Town of Falmouth’s goal is to protect its residents and visitors from all man-made and natural disasters. Falmouth’s “All-Hazards” planning approach takes into consideration the different facets of the Town of Falmouth from the school system, the western agricultural and residential areas, to the waterfront. Employees of the Town are trained and prepared to respond in a coordinated fashion to safeguard and minimize loss of property and life. The Town of Falmouth partners and collaborates with the American Red Cross, Cumberland County, State of Maine, and the Federal Emergency Management Agencies. We encourage citizen input and welcome suggestions on how to better safeguard our community.

Our Falmouth EMA team works closely with other town departements and non-govenment entitites to assist with preparing for potential emergencies.  Our staff is trained in writing and reviewing emergency operations plans, conducting table top and practical exercises, and performing various types of classroom or hands-on training. Our staff offers training in the Incident Command System (ICS), fire extinguisher use, CPR and 1st Aid, evacuation, and preventing slips and falls in the workplace and at home. Recently, we have been working closely with the Falmouth Schools, our numerous child care facilities, and our senior housing facitilies in town.  We have also worked closely with Cumberland County EMA to review current plans, compare them to best practices and make necessary. The Falmouth EMA team is available to provide training to Falmouth residents and businesses to ensure a coordinated approach to any potential emergencies in town and can be reached at the Bucknam Road Fire Station at (207) 781-2610.
