This year’s Emergency Preparedness Week theme Emergency Preparedness: Be Ready For Anything will focus on the importance to Get Prepared for all emergencies.
The Town of Grand Bay-Westfield encourages residents to register for the emergency alert system (CodeRED by OnSolve). This is to ensure that the Town can notify residents in the event of emergency situations or critical community alerts.
About Emergency Preparedness Week
Emergency Preparedness Week is a national awareness initiative that has taken place annually since 1996. It 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. Emergency Preparedness Week encourages Canadians to take three simple steps to become better prepared to face a range of emergencies:
Know the risks;
Make a plan; and
Get an emergency kit.
