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.

Falmouth EMA employes three part-time EMA Planners to assist with preparing various entities in the town for potential emergencies.  All three EMA Planners are current members of Falmouth Fire-EMS with experience in both firefighting and EMS response.  Robb Couture, a FF/Paramedic, coordinates the EMA plans for the Falmouth Schools. David Cuttler, a Captain/Paramedic, is the lead planner for the senior housing facitilies in town.  Nate Fitzgerald, a FF/AEMT, heads up the emergency planning for the numerous child care facilites in town.  All three work closely with the EMA Director and Cumberland County EMA to review current plans, compare them to best practices and make necessary updates to them. The EMA Planners also provide training to ensure a coordinated approach to any potential emergencies in town and can be reached at the Bucknam Road Fire Station at (207) 699-5254.
