Useful Information

Emergency Preparedness

By definition, emergencies happen when we don’t expect them, and often when families are not together. Suddenly, you need to think about your kids at school or elderly parents across town. If phones don’t work, or some neighbourhoods aren’t accessible, what will you do?

The best way to help ensure your family’s safety in these situations is to have an emergency plan. Having a plan, and discussing it with loved ones, will save time and make real situations less stressful.

To get started, please visit for videos and kits.
