Emergency Preparedness Week May 5 to 11, 2024

Be prepared. Know your risk.

This focus is critical to reducing economic disruptions, helping people return to their lives and work sooner. The 2023 Survey of Albertans shows 25% of those surveyed have a household emergency plan and even less are aware of the emergency plans at their loved one’s facilities, such as their child’s school or a parent’s care home. Disasters cause confusion and distress; an emergency plan can help.
