As summer approaches and the prospect of severe weather grows, the County of Lambton has launched a new website designed to help local residents prepare for emergencies at home.
EmergenciesLambton.ca includes information on a variety of topics including emergency preparedness and hazards in the Lambton County community.
The goal of EmergenciesLambton.ca is to provide Lambton County residents with information about potential local hazards and how they can prepare. Mark Wetering, Emergency Management Coordinator states that “Residents can read up on a number of topics including chemical emergencies, severe summer weather, public health emergencies, severe winter weather, and flooding”.
Emergency Response Plans of the County and various local municipalities can be found through EmergenciesLambton.ca
The website also features past emergencies such as the 1902 Wanstead Train Wreck, the 1913 Great Lakes White Hurricane, the 1953 Sarnia and 1983 Reece’s Corners Tornadoes, and the 2010 Snowsquall emergency.
