At this time of year, a wildfire is the most likely community emergency to affect Jasper. Be prepared - keep a full tank of gas in your personal vehicle, and have important papers and an emergency kit ready to go.
While first responders will be busy handling the threat, you need to be prepared to look after yourself and your family for a minimum of 72 hours. Your ability to be self-sufficient will free up resources to assist those in need. Simple preparedness can make a big difference when a disaster strikes.
