Emergency Preparedness For Your Household

Each year, thousands of people face emergency situations that could change their lives forever. Don't be caught off-guard. Know the hazards in your area. Take the time to create a Home Emergency Plan and assemble your Emergency Kit and one Grab-and-Go Bag for each member of your household.

Register for Emergency Notifications

The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD), City of Courtenay, Town of Comox, Village of Cumberland and K’ómoks First Nation  have partnered together to distribute local emergency notifications by text message and voice calls through Connect Rocket. These notifications are intended to inform you about incidents that could impact you. By working together we can take proactive steps to build a safer and more resilient community.
