​​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.

Shovelling Safety

The winter months can be gruelling. In the case of snow shovelling, it is possible that a person’s energy output from shovelling exceeded what his or her body was capable of producing.

Cold Weather

Very cold temperatures can be hazardous to your health.  Proper dress and some sensible practices can prevent a lot of the problems associated with cold weather.

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".
