Planning Ahead for an Emergency Evacuation

Monday, August 28, 2023

The Municipality of Central Manitoulin wants to be as prepared as possible with the recent events in Okanagan region, Maui Hawaii and other communities suffering devastating forest/wildland fires. As a community and families, let’s test our readiness. Evacuation can happen in two steps. 1. An evacuation alert can be broadcast for affected areas only. 2. An evacuation order means you are at risk and should leave the area immediately.

Below are five steps to plan for an evacuation:

  1. Arrange your evacuation ahead of time.
  2. Plan what to take.
  3. Create a home inventory – i.e., such a picture on your cellphone.
  4. Gather important documents.
  5. Take the 10 - minute evacuation challenge.
