Emergency Preparedness Week Begins



Welcome to Emergency Preparedness Week at The Canadian Preppers Network.

Each year, Public Safety Canada sponsors Emergency Preparedness Week on the first full week in May.  The "72 hours...is your family prepared?" campaign was launched in 2006 and each year, studies have shown an increase in the percentage of Canadians taking action to prepare.

The campaign promotes 3 basic steps to emergency preparedness:

  1. Know the risks
  2. Make a plan
  3. Get a kit
In addition to promoting these steps, Public Safety Canada also distributes a wide assortment of publications both on the internet and in print.  These documents can be seen on the Get Prepared website and print versions can be ordered free of charge.

This week, The Canadian Preppers Network will be publishing a wide assortment of articles from various volunteers, all in an effort to raise awareness of the importance of keeping yourselves and your families safe in the face of disaster.

I hope everyone will take the time to subscribe to the blog using the link on the right hand toolbar, or follow us on Twitter with the link on the left hand tool bar, where you will also see a Facebook like button.  For those of you who have Twitter accounts, you can keep up to date on all sorts of EP Week events using the hashtag #epweek.

Happy Emergency Preparedness Week Canada!
