Make an Emergency Plan

As a family, discuss the types of emergencies that could happen in Oakville, what you need to do to prepare, what to do during an emergency and evacuation, and what roles and responsibilities each person will have. If possible, identify an out-of-town location where you could stay during an emergency. Practice your plan regularly.

Prepare for 72 hours

Make sure you have at least a 72-hour (three-day) supply of food, water and other essentials such as medications for every member of your household. Check your supplies twice a year and replace any contents that have expired or were removed for use. Please use our emergency kit checklist as a guide.

Only you can prepare yourself, your family and your home for an emergency. Emergencies can happen anytime, anywhere. Make your Emergency Preparedness Action Plan.
