This year, Emergency Preparedness (EP) week is May 5 – 11. EP week is a national awareness initiative that has taken place annually since 1996. EP week encourages Canadians to become better prepared to face a range of emergencies. This year’s theme is “Be Emergency Ready”.
Public Safety Canada is encouraging all Canadians to follow these three steps to become better prepared to face a range of different emergencies:
- Know the risks
- Make a plan
- Get an emergency kit
