Emergency Preparedness Week Across Ontario
The Municipality of Tweed recognizes Emergency Preparedness Week (May 1-7) and encourages all residents to plan for unpredictable events.
This year, the theme is Plan. Prepare. Be Aware. It is meant to help Canadians take action to protect themselves and their families during emergencies.
Through the Get Prepared campaign, Canadians have learned to know the risks, make a plan, and get an emergency kit. This year’s theme highlights the importance of having these measures in place but specifically emphasizes the need to keep up to date on current conditions, like the weather, that might impact you. Working together with community leaders, first responders, non-government organizations and all levels of government, we are building a more resilient and safer Canada.
The Municipality of Tweed encourages everyone to:
1. Have a plan, including two safe locations.
2. Build a kit, with food, water, batteries, first aid materials, and a flash light.
3. Be informed, stay up to date on the status of any emergency
