Emergency Management

While Ontario is a safe place to live and work, emergencies can happen anywhere and at any time

We all have a role to play in keeping our communities safe. Individuals and families should be prepared to take care of themselves for at least 72 hours in the event of an emergency situation.

At the government level, all municipalities and provincial ministries are required to have an emergency management program.
