It’s Emergency Preparedness Week from May 2 -8 this year, and the theme is Emergency Preparedness: Be Ready for Anything. The idea is to support Canadians to get better prepared for the range of emergencies that they could face in their region.
You can join the online social media challenge for a chance to win an emergency preparedness kit: share a tip or picture showing how you’re helping to make you and your family better prepared to cope during an emergency, and use the hashtag #ReadyforAnything. Here are some ideas: making an emergency kit with items found around your home, creating a family emergency plan, or becoming more informed about the hazards in your area.
There is more information about the social media challenge and about emergency preparedness here. You can check out some more resources to be better prepared:
