Every citizen has a responsibility to be prepared for an emergency. Just as the Municipality has a plan and equipment to carry out the plan, every family should have a plan and sufficient supplies to last for a minimum of 72 hours.

Emergency Kit suggestions:
When an emergency occurs, stay calm. Stay at home. Listen to local radio stations or television stations for current information and instructions. Use the telephone only if there is an urgent need to. If your safety is at risk, you will be advised of the appropriate action to take.
Depending on the nature of the emergency, you may be asked to evacuate and you will be instructed where to go for emergency shelter. Take your Emergency Kit with you.
You may be asked to Shelter in Place so it is a good idea to be familiar with the procedures for sheltering in place. If you are at home and asked to Shelter in Place, bring your emergency kit in the room with you.
During an emergency, information will be provided to you by several sources. Regular updates will be posted on this website and the Municipal website. Typically, local radio and television stations will carry emergency bulletins. In some cases, emergency personnel may broadcast emergency instructions using police vehicles.
