Are you prepared in the event of an emergency?

Everyone has a role to play in an emergency. Emergency Preparedness Week is an opportunity to take action to ensure you are prepared to protect yourself, your family, and your community during an emergency. This year, the theme is Be Prepared. Know Your Risks. The intent of the theme is to encourage Canadians to understand the risks in their area and learn what actions they can take to protect themselves and their families.

We encourage you to visit the Government of Canada’s Get Prepared website at https://www.getprepared.gc.ca.

The City has compiled a booklet specific to Portage la Prairie to help you and your family if disaster strikes. Pick up your FREE copy at the Firehall Monday to Friday from 8:30 am-4:30 pm or view it online here https://www.city-plap.com/cityplap/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/Citizens-Emergency-Booklet-2021-FINAL.pdf
