Emergency and Disaster Preparedness Guide

The Emergency and Disaster Preparedness Guide has been created:

  • To help licensees and their staff prevent, avoid or reduce the impact of an emergency or disaster
  • Because emergency management planning and preparedness is often unfamiliar territory for community care licenees, staff and parents/guardians or personal representatives of persons in care
  • To help facilities develop and implement more inclusive and responsive emergency management plans that not only meet legislated requirements; but also the needs of clients whether an emergency is large or small in scale
  • To help ensure that licensees and their staff have all the tools they need to care for clients when emergencies happen in their facility or community
