Three Steps to Emergency Preparedness

Three Steps to Emergency Preparedness – Is Your Family Prepared?

When an emergency happens in your community, it will likely take emergency workers some time to respond. In the meantime, you need to be prepared to take care of yourself and your family for a minimum of 72 hours or more.

Three Steps to Emergency Preparedness is Your Key to Survival.  Take Action, with a few simple steps today, and you can become better prepared to face a range of emergencies – anytime, anywhere.

Step 1 – Know the risks – Conduct a Risk Assessment

A risk assessment is part of educating yourself about emergency preparedness. Unless you know the hazards most likely to affect your organization and your community, and the consequences of those hazards, you cannot form an effective plan. Thorough preparation saves lives, minimizes injuries, and can save you time
and money.

Although the consequences of various disasters can be similar, knowing the risks in your region can help you better prepare. We face a number of hazards, such as earthquakes, blizzards and tornadoes. In addition to natural disasters, there are other types of risks, such as power outages and industrial or transportation accidents.

This is where we can help. We will ensure you know the risks for your area, which becomes the basis of Setp 2, the Plan.

Step 2 – Make a Plan

Every Canadian household needs an emergency plan. It will help you and your family know what to do in case of an emergency.

Your family may not be together when an emergency occurs. Plan how to meet or how to contact one another, and discuss what you would do in different situations.

Winter Survival ( Emergency Road Preparedness) Car Safety Kit

When the season changes, and winter comes, you need to be prepared.

Local emergency crews as well as military personnel spent Tuesday rescuing hundreds of people who got stuck a snow-swept highway in Southern Ontario. It is always good to learn from other peoples mistakes/mishaps, and prepare yourself for winter’s wrath.

A winter survival car safety, emergency road kit for your car is a must, and here are a handful of recommended items to make the journey safer.

1)  Keep your car fueled up.  Try to keep it above a half tank if possible.
2) Check your car to make sure all liquids (especially anti-freeze and wiper fluid) are topped off.  The tires should also be at their recommended pressure.
3) Keep some warm clothes or blankets in case you get stuck somewhere overnight.  It can get cold in the car and layering will help you stay warm and preserve your remaining fuel until you can be rescued.  All the more reason to keep the car fueled as well to make the heat last as long as possible.  Make sure you keep the tailpipe clear of snow.
4) Keep enough non-perishable snacks and water in the car to last you at least a day.  Insulate the water to keep it from freezing easily.  Plastic water bottles are best because they can expand (to a degree) as water freezes.
5) An ice scraper, a snow brush and a snow shovel.

Local residents take action along with Canadian police and military teams working on Tuesday afternoon to rescue about 300 people stranded after what a local official termed the most brutal storm to hit the Ontario region in 25 years.

Local Mayor declares state of emergency, to get assistance from military teams.

Some people had been stuck in their vehicles for more than 24 hours following blinding snow that piled up so high it made it almost impossible to open vehicle doors.

“You really felt almost despair,” a guy who spent nearly 24 hours stranded before being rescued Tuesday afternoon after he heard a helicopter hovering over his immobilized truck. He had run out of gas and was without anything other than a blanket to help him through the ordeal.

Ontario Provincial Police initially reported about 360 vehicles and about 300 people had been stranded near Sarnia, Ontario, on Highway 402 — a major thoroughfare linking the U.S.-Canada border to London, Ontario.

Pandemic Preparedness Measures In Canada

Pandemic Preparedness Measures In Canada … so How did Canada fare during the H1N1 influenza pandemic? What plans worked and what didn’t – and why not? What more needs to be done given the threat of future, potentially more serious pandemics? These were some of the questions CSA Standards (CSA) sought to answer when hosting a national Roundtable on Healthcare and Emergency Service Sector Pandemic Preparedness. A comprehensive white paper from the roundtable was released today at the World Conference on Disaster Management.

Participants concluded that the 2006 Canadian Pandemic Influenza Plan (with updates since) was a positive step toward mitigating serious illness and deaths during the mild H1N1 influenza pandemic outbreak.

However, CSA roundtable participants also concluded there were some gaps and inconsistencies in protection during the 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic, and changes to existing pandemic plans now need to be made in the event of future more moderate or severe influenza pandemics. Roundtable participants included senior representatives from Canada’s healthcare and emergency service sectors such as infectious disease, family medicine, first responders, nursing, and hospital / healthcare administration.
