There are 3 steps to preparedness:

1) Know the risks

2) Make a plan

3) Build a kit

Talk to your family about a disaster or emergency … what to do, where to go, who to contact, what household services to turn off and what to take with you. Everyone should be prepared to be self-sufficient for a minimum of 72 hours following a disaster. A week or longer is better.

So... how ready are you?

We are also looking for input on ways to improve our emergency response and preparedness outreach in the Alberni Valley so everyone is better prepared should a disaster strike. Tell us your ideas today.
