Are you Prepared for an Emergency?

Tn _crime _rep _4

The program operates an online website that will provide updated information when the Emergency Operation Centre is activated in response to any emergency in the Central Okanagan.

In your day-to-day living, disasters may seem a distant possibility. Yet natural disasters, such as interface wildfires floodslandslides or tornadoes; technological or environmental accidents, such as chemical spills; or service disruptions, such as power failures during the winter or severe storms, can strike any community at any time. If you're unprepared for a disaster, it can shatter your life.

Expect the unexpected and plan for it. Knowing what to do when a disaster strikes will help you better control the situation and be in a position to recover more quickly. And while the region does have an emergency plan, no community is equipped to handle all the demands of a catastrophe. Help your community by preparing yourself. Make sure everyone in your family knows what to do before, during and after an emergency.

Pet and animal owners need to consider their special responsibilities for their animals during emergencies and include them in their 'family' emergency plans!  Find out more on Pet Preparedness.

Also consider individual special needs and challenges when planning for emergencies.
