Its Emergency Preparedness this Week 2021 - May 2 to 8, 2021 In Canada.Some natural disasters may be beyond our control, but there are ways to reduce the risk and the impact of whatever emergency we might face - whether natural or human-induced.
Emergency Preparedness Week 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 or provincial and territorial emergency management organizations, and Public Safety Canada.
I encourage you to take the time to review your Fire and Emergency Plans and review on how to better prepare yourself and your family for any emergencies you may encounter at home.
By taking a few simple steps, you can become better prepared to face a range of emergencies - anytime, anywhere. It is important to:
- 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.

This year, the COVID-19 global pandemic continues to have unprecedented impact on Canadians and the world we understand that we all have a role to play in emergency preparedness.
This week, i encourage you to take concrete actions to be better prepared. Please do your part. Experience has shown that individual preparedness goes a long way yo help people cope better - both during and after a major disaster. Get an emergency kit now - it can make a world of difference.
Of course there are many variations of Preparedness so please help our community grow to prepare and challenge the Eco, Geo-political,Geo-financial and political emergencies as well.
