Prepare for floods

In areas with a previous history of flooding or in close proximity to a water course, take measures to protect your possessions, such as elevating your furnace, water heaters and electric panel; installing backflow valves or plugs for drains to prevent sewer water from entering your home; and moving valuables out of low lying areas.

Download our Flood Preparation booklet and visit Flood Ready Canada for more information.

The flood risk report issued by the Emergency Management Organization and Department of the Environment will be available on the Water Level Conditions page of Environment’s website anytime the flood risk is moderate or higher.

This risk, when moderate or higher, will also be shared with the public on Twitter and Facebook.
