Emergency Preparedness
 
BE PREPARED - NOT SCARED .....

Keeping residents safe is a definite priority for the Township of Whitewater Region. Taking appropriate steps ahead of time can help you deal better when an emergency strikes in your area! Organizing an emergency plan with your family and household and maintaining essential supplies on hand is the first important step to take.

Emergencies often strike too quickly to allow you to choose a shelter or to pack an Emergency Kit so it always helps to prepare a list of what to do and what to have on hand when an emergency occurs.

For tips and outlines on how to make your own household Emergency Plan, please visit the Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Canada Website at www.ocipep.gc.ca
