Emergency Preparedness Week

​​​Emergency Preparedness Week​​​:  May 1 - 7, 2022

Natural disasters may be beyond our control, but there are ways to reduce the risk and impact of whatever emergency we might face.

​Emergency Preparedness Week (May 1-7, 2022) encourages Canadians to take concrete actions to be better prepared to protect themselves and their families during emergencies. This special week is a national effort led by Public Safety Canada, provincial and territorial emergency management organizations, Indigenous organizations, non-governmental organizations, and private sector.​

Take the steps to be prepared:

Emergency preparedness guide
  • 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.
