Emergency Preparedness Week

May 1st, 2022 to May 7th 2022

Emergency Preparedness Week is a national awareness initiative that has taken place annually since 1996. It is 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

“Emergency Preparedness: Be Ready for Anything”

Step 1 – Make a Plan

Step 2 – Build an Emergency Kit

Step 3 – Be Informed

Emergencies can happen at any time and without warning. Be ready. With a little preparation, you can respond quickly to help yourself and others.
