Thank you for your interest in promoting emergency preparedness!

By taking an active role in your community, you are helping to build a culture of preparedness in Canada. While governments at all levels are working hard to keep Canada safe, everyone has a role to play in being prepared for an emergency.

Building awareness is a great first step. With your help, together we can communicate the importance of emergency preparedness to all Canadians.

Emergency Preparedness Week

This year, Emergency Preparedness Week (EP Week) is May 7-13, 2017.

Emergency Preparedness Week is a national awareness initiative that has taken place annually since 1996. It is a collaborative event undertaken by provincial and territorial emergency management organizations supporting activities at the local level, in concert with Public Safety Canada and partners. EP Week encourages Canadians to take three simple steps to become better prepared to face a range of emergencies:

  • Know the risks
  • Make a plan
  • Get an emergency kit

Welcome to the EP Week Toolkit

This Toolkit was developed by Public Safety Canada in collaboration with partners. It includes tips and ideas to help promote EP Week.
