EMO and Red Cross Alerts

​​​​​​Every moment counts when lives are threatened by unexpected, destructive and potentially lethal weather events. Addressing wildfires, massive floods, ice storms and earthquakes, governments across Canada have EMOs that support disaster relief efforts.​

​After a disaster, Canadians can expect recovery support from a variety of sources including their insurance companies; local, provincial and federal governments; and non-profit and non-governmental (NGO) agencies. Part of the world’s largest humanitarian network, the ​Canadian Red Cross is one NGO that brings together volunteers to care for people who are in need in disaster situations.​
