Emergency Preparedness Week

May 1 - 7, 2016

Emergency Preparedness Week serves as a call to action and emphasizes the importance of taking steps now to improve preparedness levels. An emergency situation can happen anywhere and anytime. We all need to be prepared to deal with these events at the personal, community, provincial/territorial and federal government levels.

Emergency preparedness is a shared responsibility and it is up to each and every Canadian to learn what to do before, during and after an emergency situation.

In celebration of Emergency Preparedness (EP) Week, the city has put together some resources and activities for the kids:

Each year the City of Kamloops Regional Emergency Plan members hold one or more exercises to maintain a high level of readiness. Public safety begins at home, and individual preparedness can greatly reduce the potential impact of an emergency.

  • Know the risks specific to your community.
  • Develop a family emergency plan and practice it.
  • Prepare an emergency grab & go kit for your home and your vehicle.
