Organization Details

Would you like to be an Emergency Vendor?

In the event of a municipal emergency, for example, power outages, extreme weather situation, fires, floods, hazardous spills and health emergencies, the County of Essex Procurement Department is developing a Vendor Emergency List. The County is interested in receiving emergency contact information that would be useful during an emergency. This is not a commitment to purchase.

Please provide specific emergency contact information in the contacts section below.



Choose the category(s) from the list below that your company would like to be informed of. We suggest that you utilize the search feature below. For example, if your business is  "Janitorial”, type “janitorial” in the keyword field and your results will be displayed. If you cannot find a specific sub-category, click the main category to ensure you receive all notifications in that category.
