Emergencies and disasters can happen at any time. Utilities can be out, roads closed, and crucial supplies unavailable. While local, provincial and federal officials prepare for emergencies, individuals can plan to be prepared at home and at work.
With increased levels of fear and anxiety throughout Canada and the world, it makes sense to prepare for the unexpected. Everyone should be prepared to take care of themselves and their families for up to three days in the event of an emergency or disaster. For example, it could take that long to clear roads due to a severe winter storm.
As part of the Town of Newmarket's Emergency Communications Plan, the Town will be directing all residents to tune into 680News in an emergency situation (flood, inclement weather, black out, natural disasters, etc.) for regular updates.
This partnership ensures that in an emergency, the Town of Newmarket will provide 680News with regular updates including road and facility closures, power outages and any other pertinent information. 680News will convey this information as well as regular updates from Town officials.
