How long can your family survive without outside assistance? If an emergency happens in your community, it may take emergency workers some time to reach you. You should be prepared to take care of yourself and your family for a minimum of 72 hours.
In an emergency:
- Follow your emergency plan.
- Get your emergency kit.
- Make sure you are safe before assisting others.
- Monitor alerts from Alberta Emergency Alert and listen to the radio or television for additional information from authorities.
- Local officials may advise you to evacuate or stay where you are. Follow their instructions.
