Emergency Management Organization
Emergencies can occur any time, anywhere - hurricanes, winter storms and power outages. Be prepared for 72 hours, protect yourself during an emergency and know what to do after an emergency.
Comfort centres provide a place for community members to gather, charge devices, and receive refreshments. Comfort centres do not provide overnight shelter or shower facilities. For the safety of all, comfort centres do not open until the impact phase of the event has passed and it is considered safe for our volunteer providers and residents to travel. All residents are encouraged to practice a minimum of 72 hours personal preparedness, but consider being prepared for longer periods for severe weather events like hurricanes.
Opening times, locations, and dates for comfort centres are based on the availability of our volunteer providers and the areas in greatest need of support.
Opening times and dates will be shared by the media, CBRM social media on Facebook and Twitter, or by Emergency Alert when telecommunications are affected.
Additional CBRM facilities may be opened to provide Comfort Centre support depending upon the status of utilities at each location.
Applicable Public Health requirements must be followed at all comfort centres.
