Emergency Planning and Preparedness

The Township of Centre Wellington is committed to providing emergency services to everyone in the community. Below is information you can use to prepare your family in the event of an emergency.

Emergencies can happen anytime, anywhere. By preparing for emergencies, individuals and communities can reduce the impact emergencies have on lives and property. To help your family prepare for an emergency, view our 
Be Better Prepared Guide or Get Prepared Canada to learn about creating an emergency plan and 72-hour emergency kit. 

Whether it's a fire or an emergency, it's important to have a safety plan in place to ensure your family can evacuate the house safely.

  • Pull everyone together in your household and make your plan together
  • Walk through your home and inspect all possible exits and escape routes
  • Households with children should consider drawing a floor plan of your home, marking two ways out of each room, including windows and doors. Learn more about being prepared.

The Township has established an Emergency Response Plan. The plan outlines actions and coordination of services, agencies and personnel to provide the earliest possible response to an emergency.

The plan is tested and updated annually in coordination with the County of Wellington through community exercises.
