Education on Emergency Preparedness
Start Today! Disaster can strike quickly and without warning when we don't expect them, and often when families are not together. It can force you to evacuate your neighbourhood or confine you to your home.
Suddenly, you need to think about your kids at school or elderly parents across town. If phones don’t work, or some neighbourhoods aren’t accessible, what will you do? What would you do if you didn’t have water, gas, electricity, or telephones after a major emergency?
No matter how well your community has planned its response, first responders (ie. police, paramedics, fire, hydro, public health) may become overwhelmed.
Having a family emergency plan will save time and make real situations less stressful.
