Is Your Family Ready?
As Canadians, we are privileged to live in very safe and secure communities. But that does not mean that we are invincible. Are you and your family prepared if a major disaster were to happen? Do you have a plan of action if a disaster occurred when you were in a different place then your family? Do you have enough bottled water, food, and emergency supplies to provide for your family for at least 3 days?
We should not be looking only to our governments to provide relief in the midst of a disaster – we have to be prepared ourselves. What can you do now? Go to this website from Public Safety Canada for tips and suggestions. Also, your provincial government probably has a website which provides more detailed suggestions for your area. Be wise – it is part of caring for our families and communities.
