The Town of Kipling has an Emergency Bylaw, which provides for the establishment, administration and operation of an Emergency Response and Recovery Plan. The Emergency Plan is a joint plan with the Rural Municipality of Kingsley #124 and Rural Municipality of Hazelwood #94.
The Emergency Measures Co-ordinator is jointly appointed by the Town and two Rural Municipalities.
Everyone is encouraged to make their own personal emergency preparedness plans. Being prepared to be on your own without help for 72 hours or more, at home, in your car, or at work, will give you peace of mind knowing that you and your family are prepared.
Some basic items to include in an emergency kit are:
– Drinking water (minimum of 4 litres of water per person per day)
– Food – (minimum three day supply)
– First Aid Supplies
– Out of Town emergency contact
– Personal items, ie: medicine, baby supplies
– Pet food / supplies
– Battery powered radio
