Content Insurance

Smart planning makes all the difference when facing and recovering from emergencies. In the event of an emergency, such as a fire or flood, having content insurance will cover the loss of personal belongings and having a 72-hour emergency kit will support you until help arrives.​

​​As a Healthy and Safe City, Brampton wants to ensure that residents and their homes are safe during weather-related emergencies. 

Working together with our partners - the City of Mississauga, Town of Caledon, Region of Peel, Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) and Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) – we are pleased to offer a comprehensive resource on flood prevention and safety for home owners and occupants. The Flood Prevention and Recovery Guide featured below outlines useful information to assess and reduce flooding risks at your home and prepare proactively. The City encourages residents to follow the guidelines in this booklet to protect yourself, your family, pets and home.

Safety Tips


Heat Warning

What to do during heat warnings

  • Keep cool
  • Stay hydrated
  • Check on your neighbours


Evacuation or Shelter-in-Place

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".


Lighthouse Program Directory

​The Lighthouse Program allows members of the community to seek refuge within the premises of participating faith-based organizations – “lighthouses” – during times of community-wide emergencies such as cold alerts and heat warnings. ​
