Emergency Preparedness Week
May 1 to 7, 2016
Emergency Preparedness Week (EP Week) is an annual event that takes place each year during the first full week of May. This national event is coordinated by Public Safety Canada, in close collaboration with the provinces and territories and partners.
This year, the theme is Plan. Prepare. Be Aware. It is meant to help Canadians take action to protect themselves and their families during emergencies.
Through the Get Prepared campaign, Canadians have learned to know the risks, make a plan, and get an emergency kit. This year’s theme highlights the importance of having these measures in place but specifically emphasizes the need to keep up to date on current conditions, like the weather, that might impact you. Working together with community leaders, first responders, non-government organizations and all levels of government, we are building a more resilient and safer Canada.
