Emergency Preparedness

Personal emergency preparedness is everyone's responsibility and can help save lives. This includes knowing about local risks and hazards, working on a family emergency plan, and preparing an emergency kit.

If a disaster happens, it may take emergency workers some time to get to everyone as they attend to those in greatest need. People should be prepared to take care of themselves and their family for at least 72 hours.

It's important to ensure that you and your family are aware of potential hazards and have practical information so that you can plan ahead for these situations.

There are a lot of resources available to help develop activities to help raise awareness of the importance of emergency preparedness.

Check out the great information on this website - Provincial Emergency Program.
