This HOME GUIDE is designed for members and residents of Snuneymuxw First Nation as a Home Guide to help families in case of a disasterous or emergency community event.

All community residents are encouraged to prepare themselves and their families as much as  possible in case of an emergency. It is important to understand what might happen if there is an emergency and what actions each of us will need to take, which supplies will be required and how best to look after our loved ones.

Snuneymuxw First Nation has its own Emergency Plan, which identifies the people who will be responding within the community and provides guidelines for how to support the needs of our people in the time of an emergency.

Should an emergency event occur, government assistance may be a long time in coming.  It is best that our Nation and all families in the community are prepared to survive, and be on their own, for as long as a week or more.

This HOME GUIDE contains a simplified list of responses and actions to address emergency plan identified threats. This is intended as a self-help guide to what each of us should do in the case of an emergency.  Some portions of the information in this HOME GUIDE was obtained and reproduced with the assistance of the Canadian Red Cross, Emergency Management Division of the Justice Institute of B.C., Emergency Management B.C. , and First Nations Emergency Social Services.  We hope you will find this booklet beneficial to you and your family.

If you have any questions about the information in this Home Guide, please call or visit the Snuneymuxw Health Centre.
