City of Toronto storm response review public consultation

The City of Toronto is conducting a review of the city’s emergency response to to the July 8 storm and December ice storm and they are looking for public input.

In January, Council asked the City Manager to review the city’s emergency response following the ice storm and come up with recommendations on how the city can improve its response to future extreme weather events.

Residents are invited to tell the city what worked well in their neighbourhoods, what needs improving and how the city can support residents in future weather emergencies. Residents can give feedback at four public consultation sessions across the city and online at http://www.toronto.ca/weatherprooftoronto from May 9-30.

Public Consultation Sessions:

Central

Date: Tuesday, May 13

Time: 6 to 9 p.m.

Location: Toronto City Hall Rotunda, (100 Queen St. W.)

North York

Date: Wednesday, May 14

The City Manager will report back to the Executive Committee  in July on the outcomes of this and Toronto Hydro’s storm reviews. For more information, please visit http://www.toronto.ca/weatherprooftoronto.
