Emergency Management

While local and provincial governments take steps to prepare for wildfires and other hazards, the people living in our communities should be taking steps to prepare as well.

However, if the people in our communities do not understand the risks around them, they are less likely to take preparedness action.

Increase your awareness by keeping yourself and your community informed and educated on local hazards so you can take appropriate actions to reduce your risk.
