Ready Ontario

ReadyOntario is your one-stop shop for emergency preparedness. This website is intended to provide residents, businesses, and all visitors to the City of Ontario a baseline of resources to be READY for any type of emergency or disaster. From this page you will be directed to a variety of tools to help guide you through the fundamentals of preparedness. At it's core, remember this simple acronym: KPI. While this may sound like a business term for Key Performance Indicators, we refer to KPI as having a Kit, making a Plan, and being Informed before, during, and after any incident.

From our page, you'll also find ways to engage with the Office of Emergency Management (OEM), take training on emergency preparedness including the CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) Basic Academy, and even ways to schedule a presentation for your organization.

We encourage you to share ReadyOntario with others and help your friends and family get prepared. Real disasters don't look like 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.


Ontario Businesses!

Is your business prepared for when a disaster strikes?
Do you have a safe work environment?
How would your business respond to a cyberattack?
How would you operate your business if the power was out for more than 24 hours?

The City of Ontario Office of Emergency Management in partnership with the Ontario Economic Development Department is launching a new preparedness program for businesses and community organizations in the Ontario area. The CORE (Continuity & Organizational Resilience in Emergencies) Academy prepares businesses, nonprofits, or faith-based organizations through a structured series of training sessions. This new training is designed to teach fundamental skills and provide tools to ensure your organization can build disaster resiliency. Your participation will have a greater impact in building community preparedness and resiliency because businesses can help businesses in a time of disaster.
