Perth marks Emergency Preparedness Week
Emergency Preparedness Week is a federal-provincial-territorial initiative to promote emergency preparedness across Canada. This awareness initiative has taken place since 1996 and encourages Canadians to follow three simple steps to be prepared for a range of emergencies:
1. Know the Risks
2. Make a Plan
3. Get an Emergency Kit
As part of Emergency Preparedness Week, there will be several virtual events. Watch the Town of Perth’s social media sites for the following:
a Like and Share contest to win a 72 Hour Emergency Kit
a children’s colouring contest
a family video about preparing for an emergency
Residents are urged to gain a better understanding of the need to prepare for the possibility of an emergency. Please visit our Emergency Management website at www.perth.ca/emergencyprep.
