Released May 3, 2021
WEYBURN – Everyone has a role to play in an emergency and Emergency Preparedness Week from May 2-8, 2021 is an opportunity for you to take action.
Ensure you are prepared to protect yourself, your family and your community during an emergency and “be ready for anything.”
This year’s theme from Public Safety Canada is Emergency Preparedness: Be Ready for Anything. The intent of this theme is to encourage Canadians to take action to become better prepared for the range of emergencies they could face in their region.
Public Safety Canada encourages Canadians to take three simple steps to become better prepared to face a range of emergencies:
- Know the risks
- Make a plan
- Get an emergency kit
Visit the Government of Canada website to learn how to make an emergency plan, build an emergency kit, and find more resources about emergency preparedness.
Sign up for the City of Weyburn Citizen Alert System to receive critical information quickly in a variety of situations that impact the community, such as severe weather.
