Be Ready for Emergencies

Emergency Preparedness Week

National Emergency Preparedness Week

May 5-11, 2024

During National Emergency Preparedness Week, residents are reminded to consider risks and hazards in their area and reflect on their level of emergency preparedness. With a little planning, residents are better able to prepare themselves for emergencies.

Emergency preparedness is everyone’s responsibility.
Having an emergency plan for you and your family, and knowing your community's emergency plan, will help you make decisions and take action when faced with an emergency. 

Wildfires, floods, winter power outages, and critical infrastructure failures are some of the top hazards that residents face in the north.

  • Know the hazards in your community. Know your community emergency plan.
  • Know how to stay connected to others in the event of an emergency.
  • Keep enough emergency supplies on hand.
  • Talk about your plan with your family. Think and talk about what you will do if something in your plan has to change during an emergency.
