Emergency Management and Preparedness

​Under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act, every municipality must have an established emergency plan in order to respond to emergency incidents. In accordance with the Act, BWG's plan is reviewed, tested, and revised annually.​​

​View BWG's Emergency Response Plan

For updates from the Town of BWG during emergencies (natural or human-made disasters, or any threat to our community), please visit our social media channels or listen to radio stations Rock 95 or 107.5 Kool FM.

During a serious emergency in which extra support services are required (such as evacuation centres or water stations), dial 2-1-1 for information or advice on community services available to you.

Emergency Preparedness in Your Own Home

In a disaster, first responders and emergency workers focus their initial efforts on helping people who need immediate, urgent assistance.​

As a result, if your neighbourhood is not in immediate danger, it may take time for workers to clear roads and restore services to your area.

All residents should make plans to be as self-sufficient as possible for at least 72 hours
