Bruce Power and a coalition of agencies and municipalities with an interest in public safety have launched a new website to provide residents of Grey, Bruce and Huron Counties with the information they need to prepare for emergencies. The website, www.bepreparedgreybrucehuron.com, is an education resource for the different types of emergencies that all residents should be prepared for and provides tips on what to do in the event of a fire, flood, tornado, winter storm or nuclear emergency. The site outlines the types of emergencies that could happen in our specific region and how you can plan to be prepared in case they happen. It is important for each of us to take time to think about being prepared for emergencies. Be Prepared Grey Bruce Huron is a great new emergency preparedness website for regional residents. Visit Be Prepared Grey Bruce Huron today to make sure that you and your family are prepared to face any emergency!

Emergency Management - an emergency or disaster can happen at any time and it can occur anywhere. From snow storms to power outages, road closures, our Municipality is prepared to manage an emergency. To reach this goal, it is the objective and responsibility of the Municipality of Northern Bruce Peninsula and the members of the Municipality's Emergency Management Program Committee to develop, implement and maintain an effective emergency management program. This comprehensive program includes plans to identify and prevent hazards, prepare for, respond to and recover from an emergency. In the case of evacuation, residents will be alerted by continuous sounding of fire sirens within more populated areas. Upon hearing the alert, residents are asked to tune their radios to AM 560, FM 106.5, FM 93.5 or FM 90.7. For more information, call (519) 793-3522, X233 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
