Windsor Emergency Preparedness Week 2018
Canada observes Emergency Preparedness Week from May 6-12 this year with a theme of “Be Emergency Ready – Stay Connected.” The national event is coordinated annually by Public Safety Canada in collaboration with the provinces and territories and partners.
Read the Windsor Emergency Preparedness Guide. The guide contains three basic steps that will help residents and their loved ones be prepared during an emergency: make a plan; build a kit; and stay informed.
“Are you ready?” asks Chief Laforet. “If an emergency happens in your community or neighborhood, it may take emergency workers some time to reach you, and you should be prepared to take care of yourself and your family for a minimum of 72 hours.”
Through their ongoing outreach, with initiatives like the Emergency Preparedness Guide, Windsor Fire is working to keep the community prepared and safe, not just during Emergency Preparedness but the whole year through.
