The Town of Osoyoos has an Emergency Bylaw, which provides for the establishment, administration and operation of an Emergency Response and Recovery Plan. The Emergency Coordinator is appointed by Council.

 

Everyone is encouraged to make their own personal emergency preparedness plans. Being prepared to be on your own without help for 72 hours or more, at home, in your car, or at work, will give you peace of mind knowing that you and your family are prepared.

Some basics in preparation are:

  • Drinking Water (min. 4 litres of water per person per day)
  • Food (min. 3 day supply)
  • Clothing/Shelter
  • First Aid Supplies
  • Blankets
  • Out of town family emergency phone contact
  • Personal items, medicine, baby supplies
  • Pet food/supplies
  • Fire Extinguisher
  • Battery powered radio

In the event of an emergency or disaster, reception centers will be set up for registration and inquiry. The number and location of reception centers that may be opened and set up would be dependent on the nature of the situation and the evacuation measures necessary. Listen to your battery powered radio for further information.
