Emergencies can happen at any time. We all know it takes a great deal of planning but it also takes the expertise of communicating within our local government, in our community and branching out to others when we need assistance. The City of Dover has made several changes over the past few years and City Council recognizes the importance of having plans in place in case of an emergency. Our priority is always life safety.
Please take a few minutes and browse on the links provided to educate yourself on ways you can make you and your family safe in case of any emergency.
For up to date information on closings or other notifications please join us on Facebook! City of Dover, Delaware; City Hall.
