IS YOUR FAMILY PREPARED?

The Government of Canada has an official preparedness site. If you've never visited it, I suggest you take a few minutes to have a look.

The government's basic 3 step plan is as follows:

Know The Risks
Although the consequences of disasters can be similar, knowing the risks specific to your community and your region can help you better prepare. Find out here what the hazards are in your region.

Make A Plan
It's easy and essential. Every Canadian household needs an emergency plan. It will help you and your family know what to do if disaster strikes. Make your own plan and print it out today.

Get A Kit
It doesn't take long – find out what goes into an emergency kit, or where you can buy one. An emergency kit helps ensure you and your family are ready to cope on your own for at least the first 72 hours of an emergency.

The Government of Canada lists the following as known risks:

Avalanches
Earthquakes
Floods
Hurricanes
Landslides
Severe storms
Storm surges
Tornadoes
Tsunamis
Wildfires

They also list the following as other possible emergencies:

Bomb threats
Chemical releases
Nuclear emergencies
Pandemic influenza
Power outages
Suspicious packages

The Canadian Preppers Network and its Provincial affiliates are working together to address each of the "known risks and emergencies" recognized by our Canadian Government, along with many more that our Government won't acknowledge.

Home security
Crime
Violence
Animal encounters
Disease
Food quality
Hospital-created deaths
Pollutions
Household toxins
Judicial break-down
And many many more!!


Topics will not be limited to immediate dangers. We will have a linked series of articles on off-grid survival and homesteading techniques.

For the less rural: safe-house hints and preps will be explored.

When the Canadian Preppers Network finds something new, we'll try it out for you first!

A vast amount of material is available through the associated American Preppers Network and we will try our best to source relevant Canadian links.

No matter who you are, we will have something for you!

Great post and a WONDERFUL JOB !! I am so happy to see Canada have it's own Preppers Network. I look forward to reading more on the many topics that can be covered. I know that Canadians have a different set of possible risks and I am eager to learn about them and how people are prepping for them. Great job all Canadian Preppers.
