This week is Emergency Preparedness Week in Canada. The government is asking that everyone is prepared in case of emergency. From floods, floods, power outages, severe weather to even a nuclear emergency; the government wants you prepared.
What you can do:
- Plan – Develop an emergency plan for your family.
- Prepare – Create an emergency kit so your family can be self-sufficient for 72 hours.
- Be Aware – Know what the risks are to your community.
While governments at all levels are working hard to keep Canada safe, everyone has a role to play in being prepared for an emergency.
