Under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act, all municipalities in Ontario must develop an emergency management program that includes a public education program that is based on identified local hazards and risks. This website was developed to provide Lambton residents with information about potential hazards in our communities and advice on how to prepare for, and respond to, emergencies at home.
There are a number of potential hazards that could affect the residents of Lambton County. You will find many of those hazards listed under the “Hazards In Our Community” tab at the top of this webpage. On each page, you will find detailed information about how to prepare and respond, should a disaster involving that hazard occur.
If you take some time to explore this website, you will find a common theme – that emergency preparedness begins at home. One of the most important things you can do to be prepared is to have a 72 Hour Emergency Supplies Kit. You can learn about this and many other topics on this website.
