Emergency Preparedness

Will you be prepared if an emergency happens? It can happen without much warning. Haldimand County’s Emergency Preparedness Guide will help assist you with your family’s emergency planning. Please take the time to review the guide and prepare for potential emergencies.

For more information see the Haldimand County Emergency Plan.

Emergency Preparedness for Kids

Having children understand the importance of preparing for and coping with emergencies is essential to keeping your family safe. Educational activities can be helpful in teaching children about how to prepare and what to do in an emergency.

Take the time to work with children on the age-appropriate activity book and encourage discussions to lessen the scary impact that an unfamiliar disaster can have on them. Include your children when making your preparations and creating your own kit.
