Emergency Planning

Emergencies can happen in the form of a natural disaster, a technological failure or a deliberate act. Emergency planning helps create awareness, reduce response times and reduce risk. Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Canada and other government and municipal organizations offer resources and guides for emergency planning.

You should be prepared to look after your family's basic needs for a 72-hour period in case of an unexpected emergency.

The 5 step guide to Emergency Planning for Your Family will guide you through emergency planning.

Other useful resources:

Types of Emergencies

It's important to have a plan ready for the event of a natural disaster, technological failure or deliberate act. Depending on where you live these include:

  • Floods
  • Earthquakes
  • Tsunamis and storms
  • Tornadoes, hurricanes and blizzards
  • Hail and lightning
  • Landslides and avalanches
  • Freezing rain storms
  • Power outages
  • Toxic chemical spills and fumes
  • Terrorism
  • Explosions
  • Biological, radiological or nuclear incidents

If authorities advise you to "shelter-in-place" you must stay inside your house or office. You may have to seal cracks around doors, windows and air vents in occupied rooms and/or turn off heat, fans and air conditioning. It is important to have supplies and an emergency kit at home and at work in case this happens.

Emergency Survival Kit

Everyone should keep a survival kit of crucial supplies in case an emergency happens and utilities are out, roads are closed or you can't leave your home.

Prepare to take care of yourself and your family for up to three days. Make sure everyone in your family knows where your emergency kit items are stored.


  • Keep in mind the special needs of people in your house: babies and toddlers may need milk, formula and diapers
  • Keep at least one week's supply of any medication your family members need, extra eyeglasses, an extra oxygen cylinder if needed and copies of prescriptions
  • Keep at least three days' supply of food including ready-to-eat foods that don't need to be refrigerated (canned food, crackers, peanut butter, sugar, instant coffee, tea, etc.) Replace canned and dry food once a year
  • Keep at least four litres of water per person in your house (2L for drinking, 2L for food preparation, hygiene and dishwashing)
  • Keep a supply of water purification tablets
  • Keep three days' supply of pet food and water


  • Knives, forks, spoons
  • Disposable cups and plates
  • Manual can opener, bottle opener
  • Fuel stove and fuel (follow manufacturer's instructions; never use a barbecue indoors)
  • Waterproof matches and plastic garbage bags
  • Pocket knife or multi tool
  • Flashlight and spare batteries
  • Radio or crank radio (so you can listen to news bulletins)
  • First-aid kit
  • Candles, matches/lighter
  • Extra car keys and cash (including coins/cards for telephone)
  • Important papers (identification for everyone, personal documents such as insurance papers)
  • Food and bottled water (See "Food list")
  • Clothing and footwear (one change of clothes per person)
  • Blankets or sleeping bags (one blanket or sleeping bag per person)
  • Toilet paper and other personal supplies such as shampoo, hairbrush, tooth brush and toothpaste, soap and a towel and face cloth (one for each person)
  • Medication
  • Backpack/duffel bag (or something else to carry the emergency survival kit in, in case you have to evacuate)
  • Whistle (in case you need to attract someone's attention)
