Emergency Preparedness Week (EP Week) is an annual event during the first full week of May; this year, it is held on May 2 – 8, 2021. This national event is coordinated by Public Safety Canada, in close collaboration with the provinces, territories and partners.
Helen Fornwald, the Safety Coordinator for the City of Estevan, shares, “This year, the COVID-19 global pandemic continues to have an unprecedented impact on Canadians. While governments at all levels are working hard to keep Canada safe; now, more than ever, we understand that we all have a role to play in emergency preparedness. You can help to protect yourself and others against COVID-19 by staying informed.”
Emergency Preparedness (EP) is everyone’s responsibility. Some individuals may not have the support or capacity to deal with emergencies. Reach out to neighbours, family and friends who may be vulnerable or unable to support themselves during an emergency.
