Emergency Preparedness Week

During the week of May 1-7, New Westminster’s Emergency Management Office encourages everyone to take concrete actions to be better prepared to protect themselves and their families during emergencies: know the risks, make a plan and have an emergency kit. This year we are focusing our efforts on reminding everyone to create a communication network. This ensures, during an emergency, you have friends, family or neighbours you reach out to and use if needed. As we saw last year with the heat, we all need to have a personal plan that we can mobilize. We need to continue to adapt and be more resilient as these events continue occur.
