Prepare Yourself!

We all have an individual responsibility to be prepared for emergencies. Do you know how much
food, water, and  other supplies are necessary to sustain you and your family for at least 72
hours? What are some of the supplies you should have in an emergency kit? Do you know how
to prepare an emergency plan for you and your family? Do you know the risks in the Capital
Region? This website will provide answers to these questions as well as helpful resources to
prepare you and your family for any disaster.

This website is a collaboration between local government emergency programs in the Capital
Region which is located on the southern tip of Vancouver Island and is comprised of 13
municipalities and three electoral areas. The site is designed to be an ongoing source of
emergency preparedness information to residents, resulting in increased resilience on a local
level.
