A key strategic priority for the Town of Pelham is to "protect people and property" as we enhance the quality of life in our town.
Emergency preparedness can help increase knowledge and reduce risks in the event of an unforeseen event. Emergency preparedness is everyone's responsibility. Some individuals may not have the support or capacity to deal with emergencies. Reach out to family, friends and neighbours who may be vulnerable or unable to support themselves during an emergency.
The first 72 hours are the most critical in any emergency situation. The Town of Pelham 72-Hour Emergency Guide provides steps to be better prepared for the different kinds of emergencies that can impact residents.
It was developed to help you, your family, friends and neighbours be prepared in the event of an emergency. We know that disasters can strike anywhere and at any time. Together we can continue on the path to become the most vibrant, creative and caring community in Niagara.
Please take a moment to review this guide with your family, friends and neighbours.

Emergency Preparedness Week (EP Week) is an annual event that takes place each year during the first full week of May. This national event is coordinated by Public Safety Canada, in close collaboration with the provinces and territories and partners.
This year, the theme is Plan. Prepare. Be Aware. It is meant to help Canadians take action to protect themselves and their families during emergencies.
Through the Get Prepared campaign, Canadians have learned to know the risks, make a plan, and get an emergency kit. This year's theme highlights the importance of having these measures in place but specifically emphasizes the need to keep up to date on current conditions, like the weather, that might impact you. Working together with community leaders, first responders, non-government organizations and all levels of government, we are building a more resilient and safer Canada.
