Protecting yourself

An emergency could happen anywhere at any time. You can do lots of things to help prepare yourself for emergencies and in some cases prevent or delay them from happening.

Download our household emergency plan to help yourself prepare and keep it somewhere safe.

Emergency grab bag

You should try to put together an emergency bag that you can quickly “grab” in the case of having to evacuate your home. An emergency bag holds vital information and items that may be useful in an emergency. The bag should be small enough to carry and be stored in a safe and secure place where family members can find it. Suggestions about what to include in the bag can be found in the Household emergency plan above.
