EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS WEEK MAY 5-11

Know the Risks, Make a Plan, Get an Emergency Kit

Government Relations Minister Jim Reiter highlights the importance of emergency preparedness as several communities are responding to flooding.

“A number of communities throughout the province are responding to flooding conditions right now and volunteers, local and provincial governments are pulling together to respond to the task at hand,” Reiter said.  “It reinforces the need to be prepared for emergencies year-round.”

One of the best ways that families can prepare for an emergency is to put together a simple emergency kit with enough provisions and supplies to last for 72 hours.

Basic kits include items like:

  • Food that won’t spoil
  • Two litres of water, per person, per day
  • First aid kit
  • Flashlights and extra batteries
  • A windup radio
  • Prescription medications, infant formula or equipment for people with disabilities
  • A copy of your family's emergency plan

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.
