Make a plan
Every Canadian household needs an emergency plan. It will help you and your family know what to do in case of an emergency.
Complete your emergency plan online now — this will take about 20 minutes.
Make sure everyone in your home knows the plan and keeps completed printouts of it in an easy-to-find, easy-to-remember place (with your emergency kit, for example). You may also want to make duplicate copies to keep in your car and at work.
Before starting, you will need to know the following:
where the exits are from your home and neighbourhood
a meeting place to reunite with family or roommates
a designated person to pick up your children should you be unavailable
close and out-of-town contact persons
a place for your pet to stay
the risks in your region
the location of your fire extinguisher, water valve, electrical box, gas valve and floor drain.
