STEP 3: BE INFORMED

Step 1: Make a Plan | Step 2: Build A Kit | Step 3: Be Informed


There are two main ways that you can be informed about emergencies: sign up for Ontario’s Emergency Alerts, and learn more about the hazards you can face and how you can be prepared for them.

During an emergency, you should stay tuned to local news channels. Be sure to have a portable, battery-operated or crank radio in your survival kit in case of power outages.
