Would you know what to do in an emergency?

Emergencies can happen at anytime and occur anywhere, sometimes without much warning. An emergency can force you to evacuate your neighbourhood or confine you to your home or workplace. It can leave you without basic services such as water, gas, electricity or a working telephone.

Emergency Survival

In the event of an emergency, everyone should be prepared to take care of themselves and their families for up to three days.  Build your emergency survival kit.

Are you prepared?

Flooding is an ever present danger along rivers and lakes or downstream of any significant body of water.  Property owners in this area are encouraged to take whatever steps necessary to protect their property and home from flooding situations. 

Residents in the affected area of a flood are reminded that flooded basements can cause an electrical hazard and persons should stay out of those areas.  If you have to go into a basement area that is subject to flooding, property owners are encouraged to contact the Electrical Safety Authority.  For additional information please view their website at www.esasafe.com

The risk of contamination to wells is high in flooding situations. If you suspect that your well is impacted by flooding do not drink the water.  Use an alternate water source, such as bottled water for drinking and other domestic purposes.  Test your drinking water once flood levels have receded.  The Kingston Frontenac Lennox and Addington Health Unit can provide instructions on how to disinfect your well after flood waters recede.

The following information should be considered if you believe there is a potential for a flooding situation on your lands.

The Quinte Conservation Authority monitors the possibilities for flooding within this area.  Statements respecting flooding are released when required.  To view the latest information respecting flooding situations, please visit the Quinte Conservation Authority website
