Emergency Preparedness Week (EP Week)

McGuinty Government Marks Emergency Preparedness Week

Emergency Preparedness Week (EP Week) is a great opportunity for families
across the province to take a look at how prepared they would be should an
emergency situation occur.
It is a Canada-wide joint Federal-Provincial-Territorial-Municipal
initiative to increase awareness about individual preparedness. It emphasizes
how the public can reduce the risks and consequences of a disaster by being
better prepared.
This year EP Week takes place from May 3 to 9.

QUOTES

"Being ready begins with every household putting together an emergency
survival kit that takes into account the needs of all family members,
including those with special needs, such as persons with disabilities or
children, seniors, and even our pets."
- Minister of Community Safety and Correctional Services Rick Bartolucci
(http://www.mcscs.jus.gov.on.ca/english/about_min/bio/bio.html).

QUICK FACTS

- The theme for this year's week is "72 hours ... Is your family
ready?"

- The Emergency Preparedness Guide for People with Disabilities/Special
Needs (http://www.emergencymanagementontario.ca/english/home.html) is
available in seven languages and in Braille in both English
and French.

- The Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act
(http://webx.newswire.ca/click/?id=22d312de07bfb05)
establishes the province's legal basis and framework for managing
emergencies in Ontario.

- Only 12 per cent of Ontario families have an emergency survival kit
and just 10 per cent have a family emergency plan.
