Emergency Preparedness

Are you Prepared?

Emergencies and disasters happen. They often strike quickly without warning. Your best protection, whether it’s a flood, fire,
tornado, explosion or infectious disease emergency, is having a plan and knowing what to do. You should be prepared to
take care of yourself and your family for a minimum of 72 hours.

Alberta Ready has some great resources to help you and your family prepare to face a disaster.
Find their information and course here.

Follow their course, to put in place your own plan for disaster preparedness, whether you need to evacuate with only
minutes’ notice or stay self-sufficient in your home for several days. By being prepared, you’ll be able to minimize
the impact an emergencyor disaster has on your health, family and home.

Alberta has already shown that it is strong in the face of disaster, but Alberta also needs to be ready. Use these resources
to get ready!
