Seasonal Emergency Tips

It's important to be prepared for seasonal weather-related emergencies year-round. Stay safe! Take the time to review the below tips for spring, summer, and winter preparation.

Spring Flooding Tips

If there is not a significant thaw in the early months of the year, the built-up snow can result in a high potential for flooding in the spring: during the spring thaw, all of this water must make its way down the river systems. Make sure you and your family are prepared. Check out the Ministry of Natural Resources' Flood brochure or visit the MNR website for tips on how to prepare for a flood.
