Flooding and Water Damage

Emergency Response Guidelines


Serious water damage can occur from a number of sources: overland flooding, broken water pipes, clogged drains, damaged skylights or windows, and leaking roofs.

If flooding or water leaks occur:

  • Contact Security Services at 204.786.6666.
  • Report the exact location and severity of the flood or leak.
  • If there is a hazard of electrical shock evacuate the area immediately.
  • Place a receptacle under the leak to capture the water.
  • If safe to do so, take steps to avoid or reduce water damage by covering vulnerable objects.
  • If you know the source of the water and are confident of your ability to stop it (unclog the drain, turn off the water, etc) do so.
