Your Emergency Preparedness Guide

Events such as severe weather, power outages and drinking water emergencies could impact any community in Ontario. Therefore, the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act requires every municipality in the province to identify potential local risks and hazards, and to provide information to residents about preparing for emergencies at home.

Take the Evacuation Challenge:  Town of Plympton-Wyoming encourages you to take the Evacuation Challenge.  This challenge asks you to pack a 72-hour emergency kit ('Go Bag') in (30) thirty minutes.  The objective of this challenge is to help you prepare for an emergency evacuation.  You can find the contents of the 72-hour emergency kit  at Your Emergency Preparedness Guide.

EmergenciesLambton.ca  provides information on how to be prepared for a wide variety of emergency situations and covers topics like emergency preparedness and hazards in the Lambton County community.
