Personal Preparedness

The City of Brampton is ready to face emergencies. Our plans are in place, staff are prepared and trained in emergency management, and we have tested our capabilities.  

To help you and your family or workplace become well-prepared too, the City also delivers a variety of free education and training programs - something for all ages.

If an emergency occurs, you will be faced with two options generally considered as “stay put" or "flee”. Staying put is what we call "shelter in place" while fleeing is what we call "evacuation".

Your preparations ahead of time can make an evacuation or shelter in place situation more bearable. This also applies in case you are trapped in your home and emergency crews cannot come to your rescue immediately.

Both your home and your car should be equipped with an emergency survival kit. The tips and resources provided here will help you to be prepared.
