Emergency Management

The Beacon Falls Emergency Management Office works to prepare for large-scale emergencies within the community — especially, but not limited to, weather-related emergencies.

The Emergency Operations Center (EOC) can be activated in case of expected, imminent, or current emergency that may involve weather disasters (heavy snowstorms, severe thunderstorms, hurricanes, tornadoes, extreme temperatures, etc.) or other circumstances that threaten the safety of residents due to power outages, adverse road conditions, or other emergency conditions.

When activated, the EOC is based at Beacon Hose because of our emergency vehicles, large generator, radio and communications capabilities, and downtown location. EOC meetings include leadership from the Beacon Falls Board of Selectmen, Beacon Falls Police Department, Beacon Hose, Beacon Falls Public Works, Beacon Falls Senior Center/Town Nurse, and Eversource.

For more information about the Beacon Falls Emergency Management Office, contact Emergency Management Director Eddie Rodriguez at 203-704-1417 or erodriguez@townofbeaconfalls.com.
