Emergencies / Disasters

Emergencies and disasters occur sporadically and are not always predictable; when they occur they affect our communities and our loved ones. By being aware of what hazards exist in our communities and knowing what to do if they happen, we can reduce the effects they may have on us. The following links provide information on what to do in these dangerous situations.

 

Safety Fact Sheets

During emergencies we may be exposed to safety hazards that result as we try to cope with loss of power, heat or water while we wait for services to be restored. These safety fact sheets provide information on how to keep yourself and your family safe.

 

Emergency Resources for Specific Groups

Certain settings have responsibility over our young children and the elderly on a daily basis. When emergencies strike they are expected to keep these groups safe. These resources are available to assist them before, during and after emergencies.

 

Personal Preparedness Resources

During an emergency or disaster our first responders and emergency services are often busy responding to multiple calls. They must help those most in need first so it may be some time before you can get help. When you are personally prepared you reduce the impact of emergencies on yourself and your family. By ensuring you have some basic items on hand you can help your family cope until help arrives. Plan to take care of yourself, your family and pets for a minimum of 72 hours by building and stocking your 72 hour emergency kit. The following resources will assist you.

 

Responding to Stressful Events

When something big such as a disaster happens people react in different ways. Understanding how you may feel and what you can do to help yourself and those around you during and after the disaster may help you and those around you cope with the effects on your mental health. The following links provide resources to help you.
