Emergency Preparedness Week 2019

May 5-11, 2019 is designated as “Emergency Preparedness Week” (EP Week).  This is a National Awareness initiative that has taken place annually since 1996.  EP Week encourages Canadians to take three simples steps to become better prepared to face a range of emergencies:

  • Know the risks – Although the consequences of disasters can be similar, knowing the risks specific to our community and our region can help you better prepare.
  • Make a plan – It will help you and your family know what to do
  • Get an emergency kit – During an emergency, we will all need some basic supplies. We may need to get by without power or tap water. Be prepared to be self-sufficient for at least 72 hours in an emergency.

By taking an active role in your community, you are helping to build a culture of preparedness in Canada. While governments at all levels are working hard to keep Canada safe, everyone has a role to play in being prepared for an emergency.  Building awareness is a great first step. With your help, together we can communicate the importance of emergency preparedness to all Canadians.
