Riverside South Emergency Preparedness Team
Riverside South Community is preparing to create an emergency preparedness plan to support our community when a crisis affects our area. Our ability to prepare and have a plan will support the City of Ottawa Emergency Plan in the event of a crisis, and will allow for resources to be used in areas of greater need as determined by the City of Ottawa.
We are looking for volunteers that can support:
First aid and light rescue operations
Labour support (building sand bags, creating water runoff directional changes)
Opening up shelters and working with non-government agencies to support them
We are also looking to develop a list of resources that may be helpful in the event of a crisis:
Resources list (generators, heaters, portable ACs, construction tools).
Training will be provided.
