emergencyEmergency Preparedness Week is a Canada-wide annual event that takes place the first full week of May. This year's theme is 'Be Emergency Ready- Stay Connected' promoting emergency preparedness and the launch of Alert Ready for wireless devices.

The campaign is aimed at increasing awareness of individual and family preparedness across Canada. Working together with community leaders, first responders, non-government organizations and all levels of government, we can build a more resilient and safer Canada.

Know the Risks

Emergencies don't happen when you expect them to, learn about different emergencies and how to be prepared. It only takes a few minutes for your family to prepare an emergency plan. Having a plan in place will save time and make real situations less stressful.

Have an emergency kit ready

An emergency kit will help you and your family stay safe until emergency responders can reach you. Personalize your kit to suit the needs of you and your family.
