Emergency Preparedness Week - “Be Ready for Everything”        

 

The Town of The Blue Mountains Fire Department would like to recognize Emergency Preparedness Week happening from May 1 - 7, 2022 and this year’s theme of “Be Ready for Everything”.

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 of provincial and territorial emergency management organizations, and Public Safety Canada.

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 the community and 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, basic supplies will be needed. Be prepared to be self-sufficient for at least 72 hours in an emergency.

 

Experience has shown that individual preparedness goes a long way to help people cope better - both during and after a major disaster. Get an emergency kit now - it can make a world of difference.

To learn more, please visit www.GetPrepared.ca or the Emergency Preparedness webpage on the Town website to help you and your family prepare for all types of emergencies.
