What's ReadyOntario?

ReadyOntario is your one stop shop for emergency preparedness. You will learn about what to do in an emergency, easy ways to get connected, and helpful guides to get you prepared. We encourage you to share ReadyOntario with others and help your friends and family get prepared


Connecting now conquers catastrophe later.

Real disasters don't look like the movies. They look more like people coming together than falling apart. Ready Ontario is about moving Ontario residents to connect before the emergency - so we can be ready for when something does occur.

 Seismic Simulator

Emergency Preparedness Expo.

The City of Ontario is introducing the inaugural Emergency Preparedness Expo as part of National Preparedness Month. Join us at the Ovitt Family Community Library on September 21 fom 10 am - 4 pm.

Attendees will be able to "ride" the Seismic Simulator and see, feel, and experience a realistic, simulated earthquake. The Ontario Mobile Command Vehicle will also be on hand to see how first responders handle complex incidents and disasters.

Many groups will be on hand including the American Red Cross, the Ontario Fire Department, Ontario Community Emergency Response Team, and others to get you better prepared for any kind of disaster.
