Yukon Energy is the primary generator and transmitter of power to Yukoners. Because of this, we are also one of the agencies to respond when emergencies occur.
Over the years, our experience in responding to crisis situations has taught us two key things: fi rstly, the more prepared people and organizations are, the less severe the consequences; and secondly, it is essential for organizations and the public to work together and combine efforts during an emergency.
We offer the information in this handbook as a tool to help you plan your personal emergency response. While it focuses on winter power outages, the booklet will prepare you for a range of situations with the aim of lessening the negative impacts on you and your family.
