What is the City of Winnipeg’s EmergWeb?
EmergWeb is a unique, specialized website which will be fully activated in the case of an emergency within the city of Winnipeg. Examples of such emergencies may include a severe snow or ice storm, rising river levels, or a large scale hazardous materials incident.
EmergWeb provides comprehensive and regularly updated information regarding City services during an emergency. Our goal is to ensure that you have access to the most up-to-date emergency information online, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
In non-emergency times, EmergWeb is intended to be a resource for citizens in preparing for an emergency and protecting yourself, your family and your property should the need arise.
Be prepared before an emergency happens:
- plan for an emergency and find out What You Should Know
- visit the Resources & Links section for more information on preparing for emergencies.
- Have a question? Check out our Frequently Asked Questions.
Be prepared for summer's severe weather:
A thunderstorm develops in an unstable atmosphere when warm moist air near the earth's surface rises quickly and cools. The moisture condenses to form rain droplets and dark thunder clouds. These storms are often accompanied by hail, lightning, heavy rain, high winds, and tornadoes.
In the event of a severe winter storm or an emergency situation:
In the event of a severe winter storm or an emergency situation Winnipeg Transit may implement an emergency snow plan. The safety of our customers and employees is paramount whenever this plan is implemented. When the snow plan is put into effect, the Winnipeg Transit website is updated with service changes and local news outlets are informed.
In the event of an emergency, EmergWeb will have:
- the latest News, updates and advisories at your fingertips.
- information on How to Get Assistance.
- information on How to Volunteer your time during an emergency.
- maps of affected areas of the city in the Maps and Pictures section.
