Public Education

72 Hour Preparedness

To ensure preparedness of the residents and business owners of our municipality, from time to time we provide helpful tips and information through the local newspapers and by other means. Brochures on a variety of emergency management topics are available at the municipal office or through the Government of Canada's Emergency Preparedness website and the Emergency Management Ontario website.

In addition,we promote the need for personal preparedness during Emergency Preparedness Week, which is held the first week in May of each year. Be Prepared, plan for emergencies. In an emergency, your family may not be together, or you may be asked to evacuate your home. Develop a family emergency plan before an emergency strikes and practice your plan! Knowing what to do is your best protection.

Please contact us if you would like to have someone speak at your event or would like information to share with your group. We would be happy to discuss the options with you.
