Disaster Prevention and Preparedness

Disasters such as flooding can have devastating and long-term consequences.

The first point of contact in any emergency is always your local municipal government.

They will make the decision to ask for provincial support if the event is beyond local capacity.

Emergencies can occur at any time. In an emergency, response agencies focus their efforts first where the need is greatest. That is why individual emergency preparedness is so important.

It only takes three simple steps to become better prepared to face an emergency:

  • Know the risks
  • Make a plan
  • Get or prepare an emergency kit

Your emergency kit should be easily accessible so you can respond quickly when an emergency is happening in your area.
