This week is National Emergency Preparedness Week. This is an annual event which takes place in the first full week of May.
The theme this year is 'Be Ready for Anything'. The intent of this theme is to encourage Canadians to take action to become better prepared for the range of emergencies we could experience in our communities.
Helen Fornwald, the city of Estevan's EMO coordinator, spoke about some emergencies we should be ready for in our community, some tips on how to be better prepared, what you should have in your emergency kit, and more in the interview below.
