Emergency tips

Make an emergency plan. An emergency plan helps everyone in your family know what to do in an emergency, how to contact each other and where to meet.

Call 911 if your health, safety or property is threatened and you need help right away. 911 will notify emergency responders (like fire, police or ambulance).

About the Emergency Management Office

The Emergency Management Office (EMO) works with municipal, provincial, federal and critical infrastructure partners (like telecommunications, airport and port authorities) to help them plan for emergencies. Each municipality has its own emergency response plan and leads the response for emergency events in its area.
