Emergency Preparedness

​​CYFS logoEmergencies and disasters can happen at any time. Utilities can be out, roads closed, and crucial supplies unavailable. While local, provincial and federal officials prepare for emergencies, individuals can plan to be prepared at home and at work.

With increased levels of fear and anxiety throughout Canada and the world, it makes sense to prepare for the unexpected. Everyone should be prepared to take care of themselves and their families for up to three days in the event of an emergency or disaster. For example, it could take that long to clear roads due to a severe winter storm.

Please take a moment to browse the emergency preparedness tips and websites listed here for more information about the emergency preparedness program and what you can do to prepare for unexpected emergencies.
