Background

Emergency Preparedness 

Cold weather brings with it hazardous conditions such as blizzards and ice storms. You should be prepared for these extreme weather conditions, as well as other emergenicies. 

We've collaborated with Waterloo Region Emergency Management, regional municipalities and neighbouring utilities to bring you a series of resources, tips and information to keep your family safe through several emergency scenarios. 

The Region of Waterloo has also introduced Alert Waterloo Region, a voluntary subscription service that will notify residents during local emergencies such as severe weather, large-scale power outages, floods, and more. Subscribe today to get alerts of these emergencies through your choice of phone, text, or email.
