Know the Risks

What kinds of risks do we face in Alberta?

Emergencies can happen to anyone at any time and with very little warning. In Alberta, we can face meteorological events (such as blizzards, tornadoes and wildfires), industrial accidents (such as chemical spills), technological events (such as power outages), biological events (SARS, H1N1) or intentional acts. No matter what the source, these hazards can have a large impact on your community. Understanding the risks and taking steps to mitigate the impact can stop a hazard from turning into a disaster. Knowing the risks and hazards is the first step to help you and your family prepare for the unexpected.
