Canada’s Emergency Preparedness Week is a national awareness initiative that has taken place annually since 1996.
This year’s campaign runs from May 5 – 11, 2013 and is a collaborative event undertaken by provincial and territorial emergency management organizations supporting activities at the local level, in concert with Public Safety Canada and partners.
EP Week encourages Canadians to take three simple steps to become better prepared to face a range of emergencies:
- Know the risks
- Make a plan
- Get an emergency kit
Public Safety Canada offers a wide variety of resources and publications to help citizens know the risks and get prepared for natural hazards like flooding, severe storms, power outages and more.
Also visit Get Prepared’s new mobile site for key steps to take during an emergency or disaster at http://m.GetPrepared.ca
And share some of the “72 hours…Is your family prepared?” campaign posters, toolkits and brochures to promote action and awareness through social media.

Also download some free safety topics from our IT’S A DISASTER! book since it is written primarily for Americans and Canadians.

This past Friday, we announced our company is discounting our disaster preparedness book pricing through September 30, 2011 and donating 10% of all orders to relief efforts across the U.S.
“So many communities are being impacted by Mother Nature and the bad economy that we wanted to do something to help our fellow Americans and our partners involved in disaster relief, so this was a perfect win-win,” said FedHealth President and CEO Bill Liebsch.
Liebsch, co-author and publisher of IT’S A DISASTER! …and what are YOU gonna do about it? is discounting his 266-page preparedness book more than half off the retail price through September 30th.
In addition, volunteers, schools and faith-based groups can still earn up to 50% of the discounted price through a variety of fundraising programs.
As an added benefit, FedHealth will donate 10% of ALL orders to volunteer groups – like Chasing4Life’s Disaster Response Team, The Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Response Association (DERA), U.S. First Responders Association’s DRT and others – throughout the summer.
Disaster education and relief groups are being stretched thin lately but the kindness of these volunteers can never be repaid. “Our hope is to help offset some of their costs so they can continue to help communities prepare for and recover from disasters of all kinds,” said Liebsch.
