Emergency Preparedness Week (EP Week) is a Canadian annual event that takes place each year during the first full week of May. This national event is coordinated by Public Safety Canada, in close collaboration with the provinces and territories and partners.
During Emergency Preparedness Week, activities are organized across Canada to raise awareness of the importance of having an emergency kit; making an emergency plan; and identifying risks in the region. These three simple steps can help Canadians prepare for all types of emergencies, and be a benchmark for preparedness guidance for each of us and the organizations we work for…..as our neighbors to the North, it is also a complimentary information resource to the United States’ FEMA PS-Prep program.
