I AM READY WE ARE READY - EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS

Insight from recent emergencies has shown that while many people are prepared for emergencies, other individuals may not have the support or capacity to deal with emergencies due to physical constraints, language barriers, etc. There is a need to expand preparedness beyond the individual to reach out to neighbours, family and friends who may be vulnerable or unable to support themselves during an emergency.

When preparing your own plan remember diverse groups which may have diiferent needs, such as people with disabilities and special needs, seniors and pets.
