Welcome to the Town of Framingham Emergency Management Agency (FrEMA) website. Renamed in 2002, Emergency Management was formerly known as Civil Defense. The name of the agency was changed in an effort to more accurately reflect the major responsibilities of the Department. In addition to Civil Defense, the Framingham Emergency Management Agency is charged with the administration and oversight of the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC), Homeland Security, and the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) for the Town of Framingham.

There are nine sections to this website:

  • By-Laws: Information about the laws pertaining to and used to establish the Emergency Management Agency
  • General Information: Basic information about the Agency.
  • Emergency Planning: Information on how to protect you and your family in the event of an emergency.
  • Emergency Operations Center: The heart of the Emergency Management agency. The center coordinates all activities in the event of an emergency
  • Homeland Security: Resources and information about the Federal Government's work against terrorism
  • Local Emergency Planning Committee: Responsible for planning, prevention, for and directing the response to hazardous materials incidents, and offers access to information on the storage of such materials, for the benefit of the town's residents and businesses.
  • Auxiliary Police: Information about the Auxiliary police department, made up of 25 volunteers that help protect the town
