Personal Preparedness – What Can You Do to Prepare?

"An Educated Public is a Prepared Public"

Education and preparedness are the best defence in dealing with any type of emergency situation. While the Region and its local municipalities are doing everything to prepare for emergencies, as a resident you also have an important role to play in ensuring the safety of you and your family.

Emergencies can occur quickly and without warning. Take time to familiarize yourself with your community, take heed of potential hazards and be informed of emergency procedures and the steps to be taken in the event of an emergency.

Check out the resourceful self-help brochures. The information is a guide to assist you and your family in preparing for, and being self sufficient at the onset of a community emergency. You can never be "too prepared".
