Key Points for Evacuation:
  • Assemble only the essential items you will need.
  • Take your prepared emergency kit. Don't forget any necessary medications or prescription drugs.
  • If you have time, leave a short note telling others when you left and where you went (this could be left in your mailbox).
  • If you are evacuated, register with the reception centre so that you can be contacted and reunited with your family and loved ones. If you are going somewhere else other than the reception centre, advise the centre of your whereabouts.
  • Take items appropriate for the care, feeding and entertainment of infants and young children.
  • Pets should be caged or on a short leash.

Be Prepared for an Emergency
During some emergencies, it may be necessary to protect our citizens by evacuating the area impacted by the emergency. An emergency evacuation centre may be set up to provide shelter and food to people affected by the emergency. The nature, magnitude and location of the emergency will determine the evacuation routes to be used and what areas are affected. When you hear municipal emergency sirens or the interruption of local cable TV, you should tune into the local Sarnia-Lambton Radio stations for information and instructions:

PLEASE NOTE: When you hear sirens or local TV broadcasting interruptions other than Mondays at 12:30 noon you are directed to monitor your local Sarnia-Lambton radio stations for emergency instructions and for the most current information available. Stay tuned to these radio stations.

Do not evacuate unless instructed to do so by radio or Emergency Personnel. Exposure to chemicals could put you at risk, and unnecessary traffic could hamper emergency operations.

Listen carefully to evacuation instructions as they are broadcasted or provided to you by Emergency Personnel, and follow them exactly.
