Emergency Preparedness Week
Emergency Preparedness Week is in May and is a national event supported by Public Safety Canada, working closely with Provincial, Local, and Indigenous Governments to promote preparedness in every area.
From preparing a personal Grab and Go Bag, building your household 72-hour Emergency Kit, and updating your Emergency plan, Abbotsford supports preparedness.
Everyone has a role to play in an emergency. We also know that disaster can strike at any time! Are you ready for your biggest role in an emergency - Being Prepared? You don’t need to wait for a special day or week to get ready – do it now.
