Disasters and emergencies are unpredictable. They can strike anytime and anywhere, sometimes with very little warning. Every year communities such as ours experience events that pose a significant risk to the lives, health and property of the people in them.

Why prepare for an emergency

It is important to be prepared to cope without regular services and assistance for a period of time. In an emergency you may need to take shelter in your home or workplace. You could be without electricity, heat, or water for hours or a few days. In some circumstances you might even need to leave your home and evacuate to a safer area.

This guide is designed to help you build an emergency plan for you and your family. Develop, discuss and practice your plan together.
