Step 1: Make a Plan

Every Canadian household needs an emergency plan. It will help you and your family know what to do in in case of an emergency. In an emergency, your household may not be together, or you may be asked to evacuate your home. Thinking about what you would do in different situations and making a plan with every member of your household is the first step to being prepared.

Step 2: Build a Kit

Your emergency survival kit should have everything you and your household would need to be safe and take care of yourselves for at least three days immediately following an emergency.

Step 3: Stay Informed

During an emergency, you should stay tuned to local news channels. Be sure to have a portable battery-operated or crank radio in your survival kit in case of power outages. Look for official information from the County's Facebook and Twitter Account.
