As power outages stretch into the sixth day for some Hamiltonians, it is a good opportunity for residents to revisit their emergency preparedness plans. Severe weather and power outages were among the number of emergencies that the city says have occurred or may occur in Hamilton. Ice storm is ranked ninth in the top 10 emergencies the city plans for, behind other emergencies like hazardous materials and explosions, epidemics and terrorism.
The city will also conduct another risk assessment of the emergencies next year using a new process developed by the province's emergency services branch, which may have some impact on the rankings, according to Kirkopoulos.

The city opened four warming centres, something that wasn't typically done during an emergency, according to Kirkopoulos.
The timing of the ice storm also added to the inconvenience and complicated the emergency response effort, he said. Various other kits and emergency supplies are also available for sale from other commercial entities.
Families should be self sufficient for at least 72 hours with the help of an emergency kit.
