Emergency situations often occur without warning. In addition to making an emergency plan and a 72-hour kit, you can lessen the impact of an emergency situation by knowing what to do before disaster strikes. Here are some tips to help you prepare for:
Who do I call?
|If you need police, a fire truck or an ambulance
|If you smell gas (often described as a “rotten egg” smell)
||9-1-1 or 403-245-7222|
|If the power goes out, call ENMAX
|Before you dig in your back yard, call Alberta 1-Call
|For medical questions or problems where life is not in danger, call Alberta Health Link
|To reach the non-emergency police line
Text with 9-1-1 is now available in Calgary! If you are deaf, hard of hearing or speech impaired, you can register to text with 9-1-1.
