Emergency Management

During times of emergency, 211 Ontario has been there, serving communities during events such as tornados, snow storms, fires and floods. 211 reinforces important messages emergency officials need to communicate to the public, such as the location of evacuation centres, road closures, safety instructions, social services to assist disaster victims, and more.

In preparation for future emergencies, 211 Ontario and regional service providers have been actively building relationships with emergency officials, encouraging the inclusion of 211 in municipal emergency response plans and participating in numerous emergency exercises.
