Community-level fact sheets that contain information on the ability of residents to prevent, prepare for, respond to and recover from a major emergency or disaster are now available.

These fact sheets highlight residents' risk awareness and anticipated sources of help in an emergency or disaster; prior lifetime experience with a major emergency or disaster; emergency planning, precautionary and fire safety behaviours, and; social networks and sense of belonging to the community.

The fact sheets are based on data from the Survey of Emergency Preparedness and Resilience in Canada, which was carried out for the first time in 2014.
