Emergency Preparedness Information
Each year, thousands of people face emergency situations that could change their lives forever. Don’t be caught off-guard. Know the hazards in your area and take the time to assemble your family emergency kit.
During an emergency, you and your family could be on your own for an extended period of time. Emergency services may not be readily available, as increasing demands are placed on responders. It may take emergency workers some time to get to you as they help those in most critical need. As well, access to phones, gas, water, sewer and electrical services may be cut off. Learning how to be personally prepared is vital.
Take a minute and watch the following video which briefly shows how to utilize an AED (automated external defibrillator). They are located at a variety of locations throughout the District including the following public locations:
- HH School
- HH Library
- Silver Willows
For more information on how to use an AED contact your local First Aid course provider.
