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.

It provides a profile of each hazard, including: an analysis of its risk, relevant historical events, and key mitigation work being undertaken by The City.
