Souhegan Civil Defense is an organization dedicated to emergency preparedness in Southern New Hampshire. We operate in the towns of Amherst, Mont Vernon, Milford and Lyndeborough. Our focus is:

  1. Building a culture of preparedness in our towns
  2. Preparing our towns for catastrophic disasters
  3. Supporting Souhegan CERT (Community Emergency Response Team)

We advocate and teach self reliance, and resiliency.  In an emergency, help may not be coming for a long period of time. We teach our neighbors the fundamentals of emergency preparedness and survival.
