A variety of emergencies and disasters can affect Calgary. Learning about the risks and how you should prepare will help you withstand and recover from them. Explore the topics below to learn how you can prepare for each situation.

Our Disaster Risk Explorer lists the top hazards that can affect Calgarians.
