Emergency Preparedness

An emergency or natural disaster can happen anytime, anwhere.

The District has an Emergency Plan to guide response to major emergencies and disasters. There are also Provincial and Federal entities that play a role in emergency planning and response.

Personal emergency preparedness is also important. It goes a long way toward safeguarding your family – residents should be prepared to take care of themselves for the first 72 hours of an emergency, allowing government agencies to respond effectively to any emergency situation.

There are also volunteer opportunities with the Volunteer Fire Department, Extrication Society and Search and Rescue.
