Message From the Director
Message from the DirectorI would like to welcome you to the Ipswich Emergency Management Agency Website and would like to thank you for stopping by. Let me first start by introducing myself to you. My name is Jonathan Hubbard and I am the Town of Ipswich Emergency Management Director. I am also a Lieutenant on the Police Department.
I would encourage you to use this website to help prepare yourself and your family in a time of emergency. Under the preparedness tab you will find many documents that explain how to become prepared in case of a disaster, be it an act of nature or a man made incident. Please use the information provided to come up with a plan for yourself and your family. Emergency Management planning starts at home.
Help us help you by creating a public safety profile. This can be done at Smart911. Smart911 is an emergency notification system that notifies people’s home telephones with town information. Did you know by creating a public safety profile you can add cellular phones and emails to receive phone calls, texts, and emails to those devices. Creating a public safety profile also allows you to add additional information about yourself or you family that will be available to dispatch in the event you call 911. This additional information can provide responders with increased awareness when responding to your home.
If you are interested in volunteering with the Town and assisting our Emergency Management Team, please contact us. We have an active C.E.R.T. program as well as amateur radio program. Please, check back often as we will be updating this site regularly. If you have any questions or concerns that are not answered on this website please feel free to contact me.
Lt. Jonathan Hubbard
Emergency Management Director
