Safe food handling is always important, especially in an emergency. You must make sure that you handle your food safely during these times. Always remember: When in doubt, throw it out!

Plan Ahead for Emergencies

  • You must check the temperature of your refrigerator (4°C/40°F or less) and freezer 
  • (-18°C/0°F or less). 
  • You can have a cooler with ice ready if you know about the emergency ahead of time. 
  • Have foods on hand that do not require refrigeration.

You can learn more about food and water safety in an emergency from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency
