Emergency Preparedness Week is an opportunity to encourage Canadians to take concrete actions to be better prepared to protect themselves and their families during emergencies. This year marks the 25th annual Emergency Preparedness Week.
This year, the COVID-19 global pandemic has had 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. We encourage all Canadians visit www.Canada.ca/coronavirus for the latest information on the response to COVID-19 and more tips on how to continue to help prevent the spread.
As we continue the fight against COVID-19, we know that we remain at risk of other disasters and natural hazards, including flooding, storms and wildfires. Here you will find links and resources to help you and your family better prepare for possible disasters.
