It’s important for you and your loved ones to be prepared and know what to do in a disaster. Potential hazards in the Strathcona Regional District includes climate change, severe weather, forest fires, earthquakes, tsunamis, and floods.
You can take many simple steps to be prepared. You can start by making a family emergency plan and buying or making your own disaster preparedness kits.
