Emergency Preparedness Week - May 6-12, 2018

From May 6th-12th, NL911 is acknowledging Emergency Preparedness Week. This year’s theme, Be Emergency Ready, highlights the importance of residents and emergency management partners being proactive in preparing for potential emergencies.  In an emergency it is recommended residents should be self-sufficient for at least 72 hours.  During Emergency Preparedness Week, residents are encouraged to become familiar with the risks specific to their community and province, make a plan and finally, get an emergency kit together.  Of course, as always if someone’s health, safety or property is threatened and help is needed right away, call 911 immediately.
