Emergency Preparedness week is a Canada-wide initiative, co-ordinated by Public Safety Canada and the Office of the Fire Marshal and Emergency Management (OFMEM) aimed at increasing awareness about individual and family preparedness.

General Emergency Preparedness:

Historical Data demonstrates there is a potential for several different types of emergencies to occur within the Municipality of Grey Highlands, with the most probable scenario being weather-related, such as tornadoes, blizzards, ice storms, and other significant weather events. Disruption of power is a common occurrence in any of these events.

Don't wait to prepare for an emergency when it is imminent or occurring. The time to prepare is now. In order to protect you and your family know the risks, stay informed, and be prepared. Emergency preparedness is everyone's responsibility. By being better prepared, individuals and families can reduce the consequences of an emergency.

Every individual and family should have and emergency plan with provisions to ensure you are prepared for a minimum of 72 hours. An emergency survival kit, also known as a 72 hour kit, should contain basic items such as non-perishable food, water, flashlights, medication, and first aid supplies. It is also important to consider having extra cash on hand, in the event Banks are not operational.

When it comes to emergencies, expect the unexpected and plan for it!
