The Region of Durham’s new At The Ready guide is an essential piece in your emergency preparedness toolkit. This year, as a part of Emergency Preparedness Week (May 7 to 13), the Region is launching its completely reimagined At The Ready guide–a no-fuss approach to emergency preparedness.

Preparing for emergencies doesn’t have to feel overwhelming. This newly designed guide has been condensed down to the most important things you can do to make your family ready for an emergency:

  • A simple template to write your family meetup plan (just fill in the blanks).
  • Checklists of the emergency supplies you need.
  • Emergency advice that’s made for Durham Region and your busy life.
  • The Region’s favourite tips and tricks.

Keep your family safe and connected during emergencies by getting prepared. Spend some time reading through the guide and you might discover that you are more prepared than you think.
