Emergency Measures Plan
The Beaubassin-est Rural Community adopted its Emergency Measures Plan on May 16th, 2011. This action plan has been developed in collaboration with the Provincial Emergency Measures Organization to define responsibilities and immediate actions to be taken by individuals, community services and volunteer organizations in the event of an emergency, to deal with an emergency or to provide coordinated assistance to municipalities nearby.
An Emergency Measures Committee was established by the Council and is composed of people from the community who have the required expertise to ensure the effective coordination of efforts related to the emergency, as well as to ensure the implementation of the plan as needed.
Are you prepared for an Emergency?
Spring flooding, severe storms, and earthquakes remind us of the importance of emergency preparedness. We encourage everyone to be ready to cope on their own for at least the first 72 hours of an emergency, by following three simple steps:
Know the risks - Learn how to prepare for the natural hazards in Canada and in your region. Tailor your emergency plan and kit to the common risks in your area.
Make an emergency plan - Having an emergency plan will save time and make real situations less stressful. Draft or update your plan, and practice it with your family.
Get an emergency kit - In case of a major event, you will need some basic supplies set aside. Many emergency kit items may already be in your home. Take the time to update or assemble a basic emergency kit that meets your needs.

What is Neighborhood watch?
Neighborhood watch is a program aimed at reducing crime in the community. It involves supervision between neighbors during periods where burglaries are likely to produce. It is possible that a policeman patrolling your neighborhood may not notice a stranger in your yard while your neighbors could!
How does it work?
The program works on the principle of mutual aid, neighbors watching out for their neighbors. Your neighbors know you and know what type of car you drive. They are therefore in measure to recognize in first a burglar to your window or your door. Neighbors are well placed to see houses situated on each side, in front and in back of their own.
Everyone wins when we join Neighborhood watch in our neighborhood. The Neighborhood watch program is aimed to reduce crime in the community while getting neighbors to watch for each other. While working together and with the RCMP services, the Neighborhood watch program can help prevent crime.
