Emergency Preparedness

Brookfield Fire & Emergency Services wants to ensure that all citizens, businesses and organizations understand their responsibilities in an emergency and what resources are available at the local, municipal, provincial and federal levels. The following material is available to help you plan:

Bulletin: 72 hours ... is Your Family Prepared? - issued February, 2008, this outlines your responsibilities, especially during the first 72 hours of an emergency. This document is designed to print on 8.5" x 14" size paper.

SPAN Program: In addition, we encourage neighbours to help each other out before, during and following an emergency; this helps to free up volunteer fire fighters and volunteer medical first responders for more serious situations. The purpose of the SPAN program (Strengthening Preparedness Among Neighbours) is to enable neighbourhoods to be self-sufficient for a minimum of 72 hours following a major disaster. To learn how your road or neighbourhood can participate, call Brookfield Fire & Emergency Services at 673-2965.
