Emergency Preparedness

Are you ready for the first 72 hours?

Only you can prepare yourself, your family and your home for an emergency. Make your Family Emergency Plan.

Emergencies can happen at any time and can be most challenging when there is little or no warning. Being prepared and knowing what to do in different types of severe weather events and hazards will help you stay safe and reduce the impacts on your health and property.

What you need to know

During significant events and emergencies, information updates will be posted on the town’s website and social media channels.
