Digby Regional Emergency Management Organization (REMO) serves residents within the Town and Municipality of Digby. It provides coordination and support for regional first responder police, fire, emergency health service and other agencies. It is overseen by elected and appointed members of both governments, and it maintains two Emergency Operations Centres, at the townâ€™s Public Works building, and at the Municipal Airport. Its operations are supported by a regional Emergency Management Coordinator (EMC). The regional EMC for Digby is Don LeBlanc. The managers for the Emergency Operations Centres are Gordon Wilson, Deputy Chief Administrative Officer for the Municipality, and E. Tom Ossinger, CAO for the Town of Digby. The administrative staffs of both governments also support Digby REMO operations, and representatives of volunteer organizations serve on the REMO planning committee.
