Emergencies can happen at anytime and occur anywhere, sometimes without much warning. An emergency can force you to evacuate your neighbourhood or confine you to your home or workplace. It can leave you without basic services such as water, gas, electricity or a working telephone. Are you prepared?
Although Ontario has effective emergency management legislation and programs, individuals and families play a vital role in preparing for times of crisis when emergency services and other government resources may be strained. It is important that individuals and families prepare to take care of themselves for at least three days.
Individuals and families are best able to cope when they have taken the time to prepare before an emergency happens.

- Step 1: Learn About Hazards in Your Community
- Step 2: Learn How You Will Be Informed Of an Emergency
- Step 3: Develop a Family Emergency Plan
- Step 4: Prepare an Emergency Survival Kit
