PREPAREDNESS

Our Preparedness Plan 

Emergency Preparedness is a community-wide effort to managing public safety and resources during large scale emergencies and disasters.  Gambler First Nation has a dedicated team of staff and volunteers to assist our members during a state of emergency. This is done through an organized and structured effort to address:

Mitigation 
Managing or removing the things that create a hazard

Preparedness
Being ready for an emergency when it happens ·

Response
Working to protect life, property and the environment when an emergency occurs

Recovery
Repairing the damage, learning from what happened, and making improvements

Emergency Preparedness involves everyone – our members, families, local government, first responder’s, community groups, the federal government (ISC), and community volunteer organizations. Everyone has a role to play before, during, and after an emergency.

Gambler First Nation is ‘low risk’ for many of the natural phenomena that create problems in other parts of the world. The most likely emergency event is one caused by severe weather - tornado, blizzard, overland flood or ice storm, and/or a loss of electrical service. Man-made situations such as a hazardous materials spill or serious fire could also impact our community.

If a major emergency occurs within our community, it will involve a team effort to ensure the most critical needs are met. Our Community Emergency Response Plan is based on a team approach. Our approach is to bring community members and partners together so we make use of all available resources, and make decisions that respond to the most important priorities.

Organization & Management
 

Community Emergency Response Plan
is to provide for a prompt and coordinated response to emergencies or disasters
affecting our community.
 

Operations & Response
 

One of the most important responsibilities is notifying the residents of the community that an emergency has occurred. Alerting residents to the emergency and the precautions they should take may prevent injury and loss of life.

Communicable Disease Emergency Planning

The purpose of this plan is to minimize the impact of the CDE by helping the community prepare for, respond to, and recover from a Communicable Disease Emergency.
