Preparing You & Your Family

Local municipalities are usually the first level of government to respond to a community emergency.  However, many emergencies happen suddenly and without warning.  It takes time to activate response efforts.  During this time, there are things that you can do to protect yourself and your family should an emergency occur.  In order to properly protect you and your family, you have to be prepared.  If you are not injured or sick, you should be prepared to survive on your own for at least 72 hours without help.  A 3 day survival kit is a good thing to put together and to have ready in case of a community emergency.

There are many sources of individual emergency preparedness information available to help you get started.

See Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Canada for resources.

Many of these brochures will be available at your local municipal office and other public facilities throughout the County.
