Emergency Preparedness Week – CANADA – e.g. an opportunity to take an active role in your community and support a culture of disaster preparedness in Canada — is May 5-11, 2013. More people working together can better communicate the importance of emergency preparedness to all Canadians.
Emergency Preparedness Week
Emergency Preparedness Week is a national awareness initiative that has taken place annually since 1996, and, is also a collaborative event undertaken by provincial and territorial emergency management organizations supporting activities at the local level, in concert with Public Safety Canada and partners.
EP Week encourages Canadians to take three simple steps to become better prepared to face a range of emergencies:
- Know the risks
- Make a plan
- Get an emergency kit
