72-Hour Emergency Kits

Whether it is a temporary power outage or a widespread disaster, a 72-hour emergency kit for you and your family will make you more comfortable during an emergency and may even save your life.

While there are many lists for 72-hour kits and kits are for sale, people are often intimidated by the costs and bulk of a kit and uncertainty as to what is necessary. Here is a list of the absolute necessities, and a few good ideas for extras, for your 72-hour emergency kit. For emergency preparedness in general, here’s some additional reading.

Landscaping & Invasive Species Information

Invasive species are nonnative plants and animals that have been introduced, intentionally or unintentionally, from other countries or ecosystems and threaten Alberta’s ecosystems and biodiversity. When landscaping, we strongly recommend checking Alberta’s Invasive Species to ensure you are not inadvertently causing harm to Alberta’s biodiversity.

 

Boater Requirements

Boaters, keep your watercrafts clean, drained, and dry! The Alberta Government enacted changes to legislation that will help to protect our provincial water bodies from of the infestation of aquatic invasive species. When highway signage indicates that a watercraft inspection station is open, it is mandatory that all carriers of water-based vessels report to the onsite inspectors to have their water equipment checked for invasive species such as the zebra and quagga mussels.
