Date posted: May 8, 2017
Emergency Preparedness Week in Canada is the first full week in May. This year’s theme is Plan. Prepare. Be Aware. The focus is on helping yourself and your family during an emergency.
Public Safety Canada sponsors a website, getprepared.ca, with information and resources on how to prepare for an emergency. It recommends 3 steps for being ready:
- Know the Risks.
- Make a Plan.
- Get an Emergency Kit.
There are also videos on emergency preparedness. Here’s one on how to prepare a family emergency kit in plain English.
