Before an Emergency

What to do:

Who does what in an emergency?

When it comes to emergency preparedness and emergency management, we all have a role to play.

Individuals and families

Every disaster is a local disaster. Different levels of organizations respond progressively as an emergency escalates and their resources are needed. The first ones to respond are closest to the emergency.

First Responders - i.e. fire, police, paramedics

Non-government organizations

Provincial and territorial governments

Federal government
