The Conway Borough Emergency Management Agency (EMA) was formed to provide for the protection of persons and property in the Borough in the event of a natural or man-made emergency or disaster in accordance with the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Services Code.

The purpose of the EMA, and EMA Coordinator, is to establish procedures to alert the public and provide information and appropriate protective action instructions if necessary, and to provide for the coordination and use of available municipal resources during an emergency.

The EMA was formed to define the role and responsbilities of municipal officials and the emergency management coordinator, and to define emergency functions and make assignments to municipal and volunteer staff.  The EMA is to assure coordination and cooperation with Beaver County efforts in accordance with the Beaver County Emergency Operations Plan.
