cdrg+RedTeam and Emergency Preparedness Week

Emergency Preparedness Week is an annual event that takes place across Canada each year during the first full week of May (5th to 11th, 2013) and cdrg+RedTeam wants to keep you on top and informed about the importance of EP and to help build a culture of preparedness in Canada. While governments at all levels are working hard to keep our country safe, everyone has a role to play in being prepared for an emergency.

Building awareness is a great first step. With your help, together we can communicate the importance of emergency preparedness to all Canadians.

Emergency Preparedness Week is a collaborative event undertaken by provincial and territorial emergency management organizations supporting activities at the local level, in concert with Public Safety Canada and partners. EP Week encourages Canadians to take three simple steps to become better prepared to face a range of emergencies:

• Know the risks
• Make a plan
• Get an emergency kit
