Grande Prairie municipalities “Ready for Anything” with Emergency Preparedness Week partnership

Knowing the risks, making a plan and getting an emergency kit are the three key steps residents can take to be “Ready For Anything,” which is the main focus of this year’s Emergency Preparedness Week. This year the City and County of Grande Prairie are teaming up to the national awareness initiative, which encourages residents to proactively prepare for emergencies.

From May 7th to 13th both municipalities will be sharing information and resources to help residents prepare for emergencies, with numerous tips and resources said to be shared on both municipal governments’ social media channels.

Mayor Jackie Clayton says the city is proud to partner with the county to promote the importance of emergency preparedness.

“Being prepared for an emergency is everyone’s responsibility, and we want to ensure that our community has the tools and resources to do so,” Clayton says.

“Creating a plan to know what to do if disaster strikes is the first step to preparing for emergencies,” Marshall says.

Emergency Preparedness Week is a collaborative initiative between provincial and territorial emergency management organizations, Public Safety Canada, and local governments like the City and County of Grande Prairie.
