A new website is trying to help Grey, Bruce and Huron County residents prepare for emergencies.
Bruce Power along with a coalition of agencies and municipalities with an interest in public safety have launched the new tool.
The website, www.bepreparedgreybrucehuron.com, is an educational resource for the different types of emergencies all residents should be prepared for.
It provides tips on what to do in the event of a fire, flood, tornado, winter storm or nuclear emergency.
The website is the latest in a series of emergency preparedness improvement initiatives Bruce Power has been involved in, including a project to enhance its off-site radiological monitoring network through the installation of 44 gamma detectors located within the 10 km area surrounding the site.
Bruce Power has also been working with the Office of the Ontario Fire Marshal and Emergency Management and the Municipality of Kincardine to further develop a plan to enhance public alerting in the region.
