Emergency Preparedness Week
The first week of May (May 1 to 7) marks the annual Emergency Preparedness Week. This year the theme is Plan. Prepare. Be Aware. This theme is meant to inform residents to be proactive in the case of an emergency. Residents should keep up to date on important information, such as extreme weather and floods, that may impact you and your family. Residents are also encouraged to be prepared to cope on their own for the first 72 hours of an emergency while rescue workers assist those who require immediate attention. Visit online at www.GetPrepared.ca to build an emergency kit and complete a family emergency plan to prepare you and your family.
