What is this session about?

Imagine if there is fire, flood or other emergencies or disasters where you live. Would you know what to do if you are forced to take shelter at home or evacuate to a safer place? Are you prepared to protect yourself in the event of an emergency or natural disaster?

Learn how to prepare and protect yourself and your household by participating in a Be Ready:Emergency Preparedness workshop. You can learn about:

  • The risks in your community
  • The types of disasters and emergencies that can affect you
  • Assembling an emergency kit
  • Developing an emergency communication plan
  • Developing an evacuation plan

Join us and learn more about emergency preparedness from a Canadian Red Cross volunteer.

Presenters : Anne Obianjunwa (Canadian Red Cross volunteer)

Vicky Koirala (Canadian Red Cross volunteer)
