The Village of Burk’s Falls has prepared a comprehensive Emergency Response Plan (ERP) which is all-encompassing risk-based approach to emergency management. Our ERP includes prevention, mitigation, preparedness as well as response and recovery measures.
Public Versions of the ERP can be found at the Village office and the Burk’s Falls and District Public Union Library. In the event of an Emergency please dial 211 or visit www.211ontario.ca for information and questions pertaining to the management of that emergency.
Residents are advised to be prepared and plan ahead, make a 72 hours kit to ensure you and your family are prepared in the event of a long-term power outage, displacement from the home or any other form of emergency.
For information on how to best prepare you and your family, visit Emergency Management Ontario.
Reception Centre/Cooling/Warming Station
The Village has developed a Reception Centre Policy in which will assist residents with finding temporary relief during extreme weather conditions when combined with an extended power outage.
