Five Steps to Emergency Preparedness


An emergency situation or an evacuation can be a frightening and confusing time. It is important that seniors be educated about the potential for emergencies, the steps they can take to be prepared for an emergency, the programs in place to help manage emergencies, and the services that are available to help them get through the emergency, and return to their regular routine.


Step 1: LEARN ABOUT HAZARDS IN YOUR COMMUNITY


By learning about the types of emergencies that could happen in your community, you can better prepare for them.


A resource for learning about the types of emergencies that could happen in your community is the Ontario Atmospheric Hazards Website www.hazards.ca This website presents background material and map data for atmospheric hazards in Ontario. It has been created by the Meteorological Service of Canada, Environment Canada, in cooperation with Emergency Management Ontario.
