Focus on Emergency Planning

  • Know the risks – Find out more about your community’s emergency plans by contacting your local municipal office. Know these risks and the best way to respond to them.
  • Make a plan – An emergency plan will help you cope with the stress of a disaster. Make a plan for what your family will do and who they will contact during an emergency.
  • Build a kit – In an emergency, you and your family should be prepared for a minimum of 72 hours. Build your kit to suit your particular needs with enough non-perishable food, water, medicines, warm clothes and comfort items for all family members.

Alberta Safety Council Emergency Preparedness
While most workplace harm can be avoided with proper OH&S training, some events – such as fires, floods, earthquakes, severe weather and bomb threats – are out of your control. You can’t prevent an emergency, but you can learn to predict and prepare to handle it. Being able to make quick, on-the-ground decisions is vital during an emergency. Training for the worst possible outcome will prepare you to keep control in difficult and unplanned situations, keep employees safe and make sure that an emergency does not turn into a disaster.

Being Prepared Means Planning Ahead Emergencies can happen at a moment's notice. Mobility problems and hearing, learning, or seeing disabilities can add complication. It is important to plan ahead so you are better prepared for any urgent situation. Our booklet Preparing for Disaster for People with Disabilities and other Special Needs gives tips on getting informed, making a plan, assembling a kit, and keeping your plans up to date. These tips provide people with disabilities and their caregivers with guidance in managing communications, equipment, pets and home hazards. The materials were co-authored by the American Red Cross and Department of Homeland Security and FEMA.

Fire Safety and Disabilities Guide
According to FEMA, each year approximately 17,500 people are injured and 3,400 die because of fire.1 There are dangers associated with fire for everyone, but people with disabilities face unique challenges in these emergencies. As FEMA notes, people with disabilities may have more difficulty escaping during a fire. In addition, some disabilities may prevent them from taking actions ahead of time without the help of a caregiver, friend or relative.2

This free to use tool is an online interactive and self-guided training tool. Emergency preparedness can get you through the first few days following a disaster. But how can your community bounce back over the long term? With disasters becoming more common and costly, and with some areas enduring multiple disasters, the importance of building community resilience has never been greater.

This easy-to-use, self-guided online training shows organizations and communities how to strengthen their resilience. Resilience means: mitigating and withstanding the stress of manmade and natural disasters recovering in a way that restores normal functioning applying lessons learned from past responses to better withstand future incidents. This training is intended for a diverse range of organizations, including businesses; faith-based organizations; hospitals, health clinics, and other health agencies; mental health providers; schools and universities; civic and volunteer groups; first responders; local government agencies; public health departments; and nonprofit agencies.

When you complete this training, you will have a real action plan to use that will help you build resilience in your organization or across your community, bolstering your capacity to respond to and recover from disaster.


The Community Preparedness Toolkit provides step-by-step directions along with useful resources for making your community, safer, more resilient, and better prepared. The Community Preparedness Toolkit can be used to develop a community-based approach to preparedness, such as a Citizen Corps Council. Citizen Corps is FEMA's grassroots strategy to bring together government and community leaders to involve citizens in all-hazards emergency preparedness and resilience. Citizen Corps asks you to embrace the personal responsibility to be prepared; to get training in first aid and emergency skills; and to volunteer to support local emergency responders, disaster relief, and community safety.
