In times of emergency or wide spread power failure and cold weather conditions local comfort centres are available to address your needs. These centres can offer a range of services such as warmth, food, drink, information and power for recharging electronics. Each centre is run by local volunteers who along with the EMO Coordinator or Councillor for the area make the decision to open the centre. Such support for residents of St. Mary’s augments the 72 hour preparedness planning efforts suggested for all Nova Scotians.
