Emergency Preparedness Information Tip #3-#5!

 City of Winnipeg EmergWeb - Emergency Preparedness Information

Emergency Preparedness Week 2015

This email newsletter is being sent to you as part of the City of Winnipeg’s participation in National Emergency Preparedness Week, May 3-9, 2015. Look for all five emergency preparedness tips in our series this week.

Tip #3 - Sheltering in Place

Shelter in place is the practice of going or remaining indoors during the release of an airborne hazardous material, as opposed to evacuating the area.
Unless the hazardous material is flammable, like natural gas, emergency response professionals recommend that you initially stay indoors (shelter in place) until you receive instructions to leave.
If the hazardous material is already around the building you are in, evacuation may not be safe since you would have to move through the hazardous material. Your building can help protect you—shelter in place.
If an evacuation is ordered, move to an area not affected by the hazardous material.
To learn what to do when asked to shelter in place, visit EmergWeb – Shelter in Place
Stay safe! Plan ahead!
Thank you,

Tip #4 – Heat & Sun Safety

Heat affects the body's ability to regulate its temperature. The body tries to keep a consistent temperature (about 37 C or 98.6 F) but prolonged exposure to heat can result in conditions such as dehydration, heat exhaustion and heat stroke.
People with chronic health conditions, older adults, those taking certain medications or people performing strenuous activity, homeless people, infants and young children are at increased risk for heat illness.
Death can occur if the body's temperature climbs too high.
Be prepared to cope with the heat and remember to check the weather forecast before heading outdoors.
Visit EmergWeb – Heat & Sun Safety for tips on how to stay safe during warm temperatures.
Stay safe! Plan ahead!

Tip #5 - Stay Informed

One of the most important ways to ensure the safety of your family during an emergency is to stay informed with the most up-to-date information about an emergency event.
The City of Winnipeg Emergency Preparedness Program offers a number of ways for you to stay connected during an emergency, including:
  • EmergWeb- a unique, specialized website which will be fully activated in the case of an emergency within the City of Winnipeg. Our goal is to ensure that you have access to the most up-to-date emergency information online, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. In non-emergency times, EmergWeb is intended to be a resource for citizens in preparing for an emergency and protecting yourself, your family and your property should the need arise.
  • Email Newsletters- The City of Winnipeg maintains a number of email newsletters which can help you stay informed during an emergency. For a complete list of available City email newsletters, including EmergWeb, visit City of Winnipeg – Social Media
For your family’s safety in situations where there is a power outage and/or you do not have access to the internet, it is important that you have access to local radio stations.
Keep a battery-powered or windup radio in your Emergency Preparedness Supplies Kit and tune into local radio stations for updates.
Stay safe! Plan ahead!
