Emergency Management Simulation

On May 27, 2023, the Village’s Director and Deputy Director of Emergency Management will hold a mock emergency simulation starting at 10:00 am. Emergency Management block volunteers will be divided up by Village lots to knock on doors in their designated areas, asking a list of questions relevant to an emergency. This is valuable information for the Village and its residents and will help improve communications and educate residents about their options. The Village appreciates your cooperation, as this will act as an assessment of the Village’s emergency capabilities and plan. Residents who are signed up as block volunteers are contacted directly by Yellowstone’s Emergency Management: Brian Brady (DDEM) or Milos Tajek (DEM).

If you are interested in volunteering, you can come to the event on May 27 at 10:00 am to sign up or contact the Village’s DEM/DDEM (see above contact information).

Build Yourself a 72-Hour Emergency Kit!
The information below is from the Alberta Emergency Management Agency Website – http://www.aema.alberta.ca/build-a-kit

In an emergency, you will need some basic supplies. By taking a few simple steps today, you can become better prepared to face a range of emergencies. Individuals and families should be prepared to be self-sufficient for a minimum of 72 hours. On this page, you will find emergency kit lists to help you and your family become more prepared. The items below will not apply to every situation or every person. Personalize your kit to suit your particular situation.

If you are pressed for time, here are some basic items to consider for your emergency kit:

  • Three-day supply of water (4 L per person per day)
  • Non-perishable food for all family members and pets (three-day supply)
  • First-aid kit
  • Flashlight, battery-powered radio and extra batteries
  • An extra set of car keys, credit cards, and cash
  • Sanitation supplies
  • Extra eyeglasses or contact lenses
  • Important family documents and contact numbers
  • Prescriptions or special medications
  • Chargers for electronic communication devices
  • Insurance documents
  • Emergency phone numbers list
  • A change of clothes for each family member

Emergency supply requirements vary depending on your needs. You will need to decide which essential items to include for yourself and your family. Here are some things to consider:
Women who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have infant children will want to include provisions such as:
Breastfeeding aides, formula, bottles, baby food, and extra water
Diapers, wipes, and extra changes of clothes
Prenatal vitamins, ointments, and medications for mom and baby (over-the-counter and prescription)

Persons with disabilities and special needs will want to include additional support. For example, a person in a wheelchair will want to include:
Tire patch kit
Can of the seal-in-air product (to repair flat tires on your wheelchair or scooter)
Supply of inner tubes
Pair of heavy gloves (to protect your hands while wheeling over a glass or other sharp debris)
Latex-free gloves (for anyone providing personal care to you)
Spare deep-cycle battery for a motorized wheelchair or scooter
A lightweight, manual wheelchair as a backup to a motorized wheelchair (if feasible)
Spare catheters (if applicable)
Your power outage backup plan

Individuals with severe allergies, chronic medical conditions, or special medical needs will want to include the necessary supplies. For example, a person with diabetes will want to include:
MedicAlert bracelet or identification
Extra supply of insulin or oral agent
Pump supplies, syringes, needles, and insulin pens (if used)
Small container for storing used syringes and/or needles (if applicable)
Blood glucose testing kit, spare batteries, and record book
Supply of blood glucose and urine ketone testing strips Fast-acting insulin for high blood glucose (if applicable)
Fast-acting sugar for low blood glucose
Extra food to cover delayed meals
Ice packs and thermal bag to store insulin (if applicable)

Tips for building and maintaining your kits:
Your kit should be updated every six months to ensure food and medications are not expired, the water is fresh, clothing still fits, personal documents and credit cards are up-to-date, and batteries are charged.
Take away the hassle of remembering by setting a reminder on your calendar or use daylight savings as your reminder to update your emergency kits.
Consider seasonal requirements when you update your kits. In the spring include bug spray, sunscreen, and hats. In the fall you trade the bug spray for warm clothing and extra blankets.
When packing your kits, dividing items into groups and packing them in Ziploc bags not only helps with the organization but can prevent leakage caused by melting, broken or spoiled items.
