Emergency Preparedness Week

from Sunday, May 7, 2017 - 6:00am to Saturday, May 13, 2017 - 10:00pm

Emergency Preparedness (EP) Week 2017 (May 7-13) is a Canada-wide initiative to increase awareness of individual and family preparedness.


Take the #PrepareYourSelfie Challenge. Join the Conversation. It’s simple.

  • Take a “selfie” to show how you’re prepared for an emergency by creating a plan and building a kit,
  • Share it on social media using #PrepareYourSelfie
  • Challenge family, friends, and/or colleagues to do so too! They then post their challenge via social media, along with a simple caption, such as the example below:

“Emergencies can strike anywhere, at any time. That’s why I’m prepared. I’ve made a plan and built an emergency preparedness kit. Now, I’m challenging (insert name of those being challenged) to do the same. Emergency preparedness starts with you. #PrepareYourSelfie”
