Markham Emergency Management
Emergencies can happen anywhere, at any time – sometimes without warning. An emergency can force you to evacuate your neighbourhood, or confine you to your home or workplace without basic services such as water, gas, electricity or a working telephone.
Is your family prepared?
It’s your responsibility to take the necessary steps of emergency preparedness for you and your family. Do you know the risks in your community? Do you have an emergency plan? Do you have an emergency preparedness kit?
Learn what you can do to prepare of an emergency.
Are YOU Prepared?
Celebrate Emergency Preparedness Week May 4 - 11, 2013, by:
- Knowing the Risks your Community

- Getting a 72hr Emergency Preparedness Kit
The week of May 4-11, 2013, has been designated by the Province of Ontario as Emergency Preparedness Week where communities across Ontario will have the opportunity to increase their awareness and understanding of emergency preparedness.
To kick-start Emergency Preparedness Week 2013, Markham Emergency Management and Markham Fire and Emergency Services will be participating in a York Region wide Emergency Preparedness Fair on Saturday May 4th, 2013. Make sure you visit our displays at the fair, located at 17250 Yonge Street, Newmarket from 10am - 3pm. Get lots of information and resources and see a variety of demonstrations by York Region's and local municipal emergency services.
The 2013 Emergency Preparedness Theme focuses on ensuring seniors and older adults are provided information and resources about being prepared. While they have the ability to help themselves and others, seniors can be more vulnerable during emergencies. Emergency Management Ontario has developed resources to help seniors and their families ensure they are well prepared.
Access a helpful guide on seniors and emergency preparedness in a variety of languages.
