Emergency Preparedness

Even in an quiet, slow paced community such as Dover, unexpected emergencies happen. This could be a spill of diesel fuel at the Long Bridge that may affect the Dover drinking water supply, or someone taking a fall while biking on the Dover-Sandpoint Trail. For the wide range of possible emergencies, it is the responsibility of the City of Dover as well as Bonner County and the State of Idaho to plan for all possible events and to keep residents informed as to what has happened and what is being done.
