3-2-1… Are you prepared?

Join us on May 12!

If a local disaster happened in our community tomorrow, would you be prepared?

That’s what Emergency Preparedness Week (May 6-12) wants to help you accomplish! The week-long event held in May each year aims to build a culture of preparedness in Canada.

This year’s theme is Be Emergency Ready. The campaign will help Canadians take action to protect themselves and their families during emergencies.

Here are three actions you can take to get you started:


3. Attend the Open House on May 12

The Chestermere Emergency Management Agency (CHEMA) is hosting a free event on May 12 about the importance of being prepared for an emergency. All are welcome (and encouraged) to attend and learn what you can do to be safe at home or in an evacuation. The day will include Fire Hall and Emergency Operation Centre tours, a 72 hour kit assembly activity, an appearance by Sparky the Dog, a car seat safety clinic, and lots of resources. The Open House will take place at the Fire Hall on May 12 from 10-2 p.m.


2. Be the first to know

You wouldn’t want to be the last to know if something was happening in your community… would you? CHEMA officials use an alerting system to let residents know if there’s an emergency in your area and what you need to do. To stay up to date with the emergency, you can sign up to receive alerts via text and/or email on the website under the Alert Centre category. You will only be notified in an emergency. You can also follow the City on Facebook and Twitter for emergency updates. For province-wide emergency alerts (including Chestermere) you can visit the Alberta Emergency Alert website to sign up.


1. Prepare your 72 hour kit

In the event of an emergency, you may be required to evacuate or stay in your home. In either situation you’ll want to have a 72-hour emergency kit which holds enough supplies for you and your family for three days. If you’re a DIY person, you can find a 72 hour kit list on the website and create your own bag. You can purchase a bag through Red Cross or even win one at the Open House on May 12!
