Emergency Reception Centers

What is an Emergency Reception Center?

An Emergency Reception Centre is a safe gathering place for people displaced from their homes as a result of an emergency or disaster. The initial function of the Centre is to receive evacuees who have been forced from their homes as a result of an emergency or disaster. A Centre is usually available for the first 72 hours following a disaster, during which evacuees should plan their next steps by contacting their insurance agents, families, and friends. 

Whether or not a reception Centre is opened depends on many factors including the size of the emergency and the number of volunteers or facilities available. 
If you are asked to evacuate, you will also be provided with information about the location of the Centre set up for your area. 

What to Expect at an Emergency Reception Centre

Can residents bring pets to an Emergency Reception Centre?

It is your responsibility to make provisions for your pet(s) prior to entering the Emergency Reception Centre. If you need help in locating a kennel or making other arrangements for your pet, please see the centre manager.
