Emergency Preparedness

Emergencies can happen anywhere at any time with little or no warning. Your best protection in any emergency is to be prepared for the unexpected and know what to do. This will help you control the situation better and allow you to recover more quickly. Remember: Emergency Preparedness Starts with You!

Municipal Preparedness

The Central Frontenac Emergency Response Plan establishes an emergency management structure and emergency response guidelines for the Township, and related emergency agencies, in the event of a major emergency that is beyond the normal response capabilities of the municipality. The plan provides for the extraordinary arrangements and measures that may be required to protect the health, safety, welfare, environment and economic health of Barrie residents, businesses and visitors when faced with an emergency.

Provincial Preparedness

The Minister of Community Safety and Correctional Services, through Emergency Management Ontario, maintains a full-time provincial emergency operations centre to monitor the public safety situation and coordinate the provincial response to any emergency.

Federal Preparedness

Public Safety Canada is responsible for developing and implementing federal policies for emergency management. Public Safety Canada also coordinates Emergency Preparedness Week (first full week of May, annually) in collaboration with the provinces/territories and partners.
