Emergency Preparedness

What will you do if you get caught in an emergency? It takes planning to prepare for an emergency so you can prevent, respond to, and recover from emergencies that may put your life at risk.

The Health Unit recommends that everyone follow these three basic steps to prepare for emergency situations: know the risks, make a plan, and get an emergency kit.

See Your Emergency Preparedness Guide for vital information on how to get prepared for emergency situations.

Each emergency comes with a variety of hazards that can affect the safety of the food you eat. With power outages affecting refrigeration or floods directly contaminating your food, the response to each situation can be different. Learn how to respond during each emergency to ensure your food remains safe to eat.
