Household & Community Preparedness

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. Gather basic supplies like bottled water, non-perishable food items, blankets, a flashlight and first aid kit, then consider what additional items (e.g., medications) you may need. Become a certified amateur radio operator.

Disaster preparedness shouldn’t make you worry or feel afraid. Being prepared can even make you feel calm and confident, knowing that, in case of an emergency, you and your family will know what to do
