May 3 to 9, 2020, is Emergency Preparedness Week in Canada, an annual reminder to take concrete actions to better prepare yourself and your family during emergencies.
“While we are in the midst of a challenging type of emergency that most of us have not experienced before, it’s important to remember that even during these troubling times, other emergencies or disasters can happen,” said John Klie, Fire Chief of the Terrace Fire Department. “From fires to floods to earthquakes, there are a variety of situations that could occur—but being prepared can help make them less scary and more manageable.” The Terrace Fire Department encourages everyone to be prepared with at least 72 hours’ worth of supplies.
PreparedBC offers a variety of resources to help individuals, families, and businesses be prepared for a variety of situations. The City of Terrace will be sharing some of these resources on our social media accounts this week.
- PreparedBC Household Emergency Plan
- PreparedBC Flood Preparedness Guide
- PreparedBC Wildfire Preparedness Guide
- PreparedBC Earthquake and Tsunami Guide
- PreparedBC COVID-19 Resources
“The Terrace Fire Department encourages everyone to spread the word to family and friends because the more people who are prepared, the better off our city will be as a whole in the event of any type of emergency,” said Klie.
