Since the 2013 flood, the City of Calgary has taken steps to reduce the city’s risk of flooding by 50 per cent! But we can’t prevent flooding entirely, because it can happen quickly with little warning. That’s why it’s important that Calgarians are ready too.

You are encouraged to do the following and get your prepared for the flood season:

  • Find out if your home and community are at risk of river flooding
  • Take steps to reduce flood damage & be prepared if you need to evacuate
  • Stay informed of river conditions as they can change quickly
