Municipal Evacuation Plan – Plan d’évacuation municipal

Drop the Needle (2016)
Step 10:  Know your Municipal Plan
Most municipalities in Canada have emergency plans to deal with both peacetime disasters and a nuclear attack situation. These include the details of how welfare, health, police, public utilities, fire and other emergency services will operate. Some larger communities have developed plans to assist in the evacuation of those who would choose to leave before an attack or who might have to be evacuated as survivors or casualties following an attack. These plans include traffic arrangements to reception centres and medical facilities in nearby communities.
Find out about your municipal emergency plans now and keep well informed about them as they are further developed.
