Berlin Emergency Management


The Berlin Emergency Management Team (BEMT) is a volunteer group whose purpose is to support the Town of Berlin emergency services and Berlin Citizens in the event of a major emergency or disaster, whether it is natural or man-made.

The team is always looking to add new members.  The BEMT meets 6:30pm monthly on the 2nd Thursday at the Four Corners fire station. To join the team or for questions contact the Town Administrator 802-552-8801.

The Berlin EM Team strongly encourages all town residents to review the “Family Emergency Preparedness Workbook” available on-line from Vermont Emergency Management at:

To better warn residents of emergencies, the Berlin EM Team uses the Vermont Alert system (VT-Alert), to send emergency notifications through text messages, e-mail, and telephone voice messages. We encourage town residents to sign up for this free service which can be done on-line at the following link:  If you’re not able to register on-line, contact the Town Clerks office 802-229-9298 or Town Administrator 802-552-8801 and they will assist you in signing up to receive alerts on your house phone.

Citizen Assistance Registration for Emergencies (CARE):

If you or someone you know would need special assistance in an emergency, you can fill out a CARE registration form and submit it to Vermont 211.  Your information will be entered into a database linked to the E-911 system, and all records are confidential and will only be shared with groups involved in helping to keep people safe in an emergency.
