Emergency Management Planning Guide

Emergencies occur suddenly and without warning. Are you prepared?

Ontario has faced more than 30 natural, health and biological disasters over the last decade. These events have affected local residents by causing deaths, personal injuries, disease outbreak (infection) and evacuation.

People with chronic kidney disease must have access to care during these types of emergencies. Everyone has a role to play in being prepared and knowing what to do in advance of an emergency.

Our Emergency Management Planning Guide standardizes and supports emergency management planning for all chronic kidney disease service providers across the province. All of these service providers across Ontario have developed local emergency management plans.
