Connected and prepared communities
Many of the impacts of an emergency are similar to disruptions in everyday life – power cuts, water outages, road closures, but they are likely to be more widespread and last longer.
In an emergency, public utilities and emergency services will initially be focused on saving lives and restoring infrastructure and essential services. The preparations you make now for these types of disruptions are essential for coping safely and comfortably following an emergency.
You and your community could be isolated for at least three days, possibly more. The most immediate source of aid will be your community and the actions you took to prepare before an event.
