Emergency Preparedness

Are you prepared for an Emergency?

Emergencies and disasters can happen at any time causing power outages, road closures and limiting our ability to get out and pick up the supplies we need.  First Nations, municipalities, provinces and the federal government, all prepare for emergencies, and households can prepare for emergencies too.
Everyone should be prepared to take care of themselves and their families for up to 72 hours during an emergency event. To be prepared for an emergency: know the risks, have a plan and make a 72 –hour kit and a Grab and Go Kit and if you have pets, a kit for them as well. 
Click here to access the MBQ Emergency Preparedness Guide that contains valuable information and check lists to help you make a plan and prepare a 72-hour kit. Here also, is the Hastings County EP Guide
