Prepare for an Emergency

During an emergency, threats to your health could be immediate. Drinking water may become contaminated, food may become unsafe, or the air may be dangerous to breathe.

Lambton Public Health (LPH) monitors the spread of infectious diseases throughout the county, province, and around the world to prepare for possible outbreaks that may affect our health. In a local emergency, LPH provides input on public health matters and may lead the response to health issues.

In an emergency, municipal sirens may be activated and messages may be sent using Sarnia-Lambton Alerts (formerly MyCNN). 

Your primary sources of information and instructions from emergency officials will be local radio stations (1070 AM CHOK, 103.9 FM CHOK, 99.9 FM CFGX, and 106.3 FM CFHK), government websites, social media, or calling 2-1-1. Follow all instructions carefully and be prepared to relocate or shelter in place if asked.

Learn how to prepare for an emergency by learning the risks for your community and developing a plan that includes making an emergency kit.
