Be Ready for Anything: Make Preparedness a Habit
The Leduc Emergency Management Agency (LEMA) encourages residents to take steps to be better prepared to protect themselves and their families from disasters, emergencies and unexpected situations during Emergency Preparedness Week (EP Week). This year’s theme is Emergency Preparedness: Be Ready for Anything. Some disruptions may be beyond our control, but there are ways to reduce the risk and impact of any emergency.
During EP Week and throughout the year, residents can make preparedness a habit and become better prepared to face a range of emergencies through a few simple steps:
- Know the risks – Find out the risks that face you and the community to better prepare for the possibilities
- Make a plan – Know what you and your family will do
- Get an emergency kit – Be prepared to be self-sufficient for at least 72 hours in an emergency
Cumulatively, these steps help us to better cope and recover from any disruptions. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to have an impact on us, it has also highlighted the role everyone has to play in emergency preparedness.
