Visit the Emergency Preparedness Week display at Oakville Place Mall May 6 and 7

May 2 – 8, 2010 is Emergency Preparedness Week – are you and your family ready for an emergency such as a tornado or blackout?

You may not be able to predict an emergency, but by taking a few simple steps, you can become better prepared.

Find out how by visiting the Oakville Fire Department’s display at centre court in Oakville Place Mall on May 6th and 7th, 2010.  Visitors will also learn how the Town of Oakville leads the response and recovery strategies in an emergency to maximize the safety and security of its residents.

“Emergencies can happen at anytime,” said Andy Glynn, Deputy Fire Chief.  “It’s important that you and your family be ready to care for yourselves for a minimum of 72 hours at home, work or even in your car.”

This year Emergency Management Ontario is also encouraging everyone to take the “Emergency Preparedness Challenge”. By answering five short questions, you can be eligible to win great prizes.  Please visit the Emergency Management Ontario webpage to ‘Take the Challenge.’

Emergency Preparedness Week happens May 2-May 8, 2010, marking the 15th anniversary of this Canada-wide initiative to increase awareness about individual and family preparedness.
