Emergency Preparedness Week

From Public Safety Canada

May 5-11, 2019


Emergency Preparedness Week is an opportunity to encourage Canadians to take concrete actions to be better prepared to protect themselves and their families during emergencies. This year’s theme is “Be Emergency Ready”.

While governments at all levels are working hard to keep Canada safe, everyone has a role to play in being prepared for an emergency; and being prepared means having the knowledge and equipment necessary to better cope during an emergency. There are many ways to “Be Emergency Ready”. Here you will find links and resources to help you and your family better prepare for possible disasters.
