In your day-to-day living, disasters may seem a distant possibility. Yet natural disasters, such as floods or tornadoes, technological or environmental accidents such as chemical spills, or service disruptions, like the massive power blackout in August 2003, can strike any community, including ours, at anytime.
Like all other municipalities across the province, the City of Pembroke has been proactive in preparing and constantly reviewing and updating its official Emergency Plan. The plan provides guidance to key officials, agencies and departments within the city regarding the expected initial response to a serious, large-scale emergency and an overview of what their individual responses should be.
If you require further information about the city’s emergency resources and planning, please contact Colleen Sauriol, Emergency Management Co-ordinator for the City of Pembroke, at (613) 735-6821 x 1301 or by email at: email@example.com
If you’re unprepared for a disaster, it can shatter your life. Expect the unexpected and plan for it. Knowing what to do when a disaster strikes will help you better control the situation and be in a better position to recover more quickly.
The City of Pembroke has done its collective homework. We have a plan in place. Do you? Make sure everyone in your family knows what to do before, during and after an emergency. Set up a family meeting to discuss how you can best prepare for an emergency. Have your own plan.

Remember, in an emergency or to save a life, call 9-1-1 for help. You cannot currently text 9-1-1. If you are not experiencing an emergency, do not call 9-1-1.
