Are you prepared for an Emergency? – Emergency Preparedness Guide

Are you prepared for an Emergency?

Since an emergency can occur suddenly and without any warning, it is vital for everyone, including people with disabilities / special needs and/or service animal/ pet owners to know what supplies they should include in their 72 hours emergency survival kit to keep themselves self-reliant for at least three (3) days following an emergency.

To assist all Ontarians in becoming better prepared for an emergency, regardless of their abilities, CARP recommends the Government of Ontario’s new publication, ”Emergency Preparedness Guide for People with Disabilities / Special Needs”.

This new provincial Guide is:

“…the most comprehensive emergency preparedness resource for people with disabilities and special needs in Canada. It provides vital information to the over 1.5 million Ontarians with visible and/or non-visible disabilities and builds on important lessons learned during disasters such as Hurricane Katrina.” –Emergency Management Ontario
