Emergency Preparedness Week May - May 1-7

Be Ready for Anything!

Emergency Preparedness Week is a national event supported by Public Safety Canada, working closely with provincial and local government emergency management organizations, Indigenous organizations, non-governmental organizations, and the private sector. An annual event for over 25 years, the week is recognized during the first full week of May.

This year’s theme is Emergency Preparedness: Be Ready for Anything. Everyone has a role to play in an emergency. EP Week is an opportunity for you to take action to ensure you are prepared to protect yourself, your family, and your community during an emergency. Emergency Management Oceanside is a partnership between the City of Parksville and Town of Qualicum Beach to provide large scale emergency support and disaster services to residents of our region.
