Emergencies can happen at any time. Severe weather events like tornadoes, floods, blizzards, and power outages are becoming more common. When an emergency happens, local municipalities are often the first level of government to respond.

Emergency Management

The Township of South Frontenac has an Emergency Response Plan that outlines operations and procedures we‘ll follow in the event of an emergency. The Emergency Control Group reviews the plan annually.

If you have any questions regarding the plan, contact:

Are You Prepared?

If an emergency happens it may take emergency workers some time to reach you. You should be prepared to take care of yourself and your family for a minimum of 72 hours.

The following list includes items you may need to meet your household’s unique needs, and items to have ready in case you have to leave your home quickly. It’s always a good idea to have a “grab and go” bag ready with these items at all times.

  • food (non-perishable and easy-to-prepare items, enough for three days) and a manual can opener
  • bottled water (4 litres per person for each day)
  • medication(s)
  • flashlight and glow stick
  • radio (crank or battery-run)
  • extra batteries
  • first-aid kit
  • candles and matches/lighter
  • hand sanitizer or moist towelettes
  • important papers (identification, contact lists, copies of prescriptions, etc.)
  • extra car keys and cash
  • whistle (to attract attention, if needed)
  • zip-lock bag (to keep things dry)
  • garbage bags

Special considerations

  • items for babies and small children—diapers, formula, bottles, baby food, comfort items
  • prescription medication
  • medical supplies and equipment
  • pet food and supplies
  • any other items specific to your household’s needs

Extra supplies for evacuation

  • clothes, shoes
  • sleeping bags or blankets
  • personal items (soap, toothpaste, shampoo, comb, other toiletries)
  • playing cards, travel games and other activities for children
