It’s Emergency Preparedness Week and the Federal Government wants Canadians to be aware and ready for any surprise situation that could come our way.
BC Fire and Emergency Spokesperson Emily Dicken says the Bulkley Valley should be prepared for avalanches, floods, and severe weather causing power outages.
Dicken says Bulkley Valley should take necessary precautions and be ready for anything.
“As far as knowing what the risks are in their community, making a plan for their household, and then getting a preparedness kit so they are prepared should an event happen,” she says.
Dicken also also says it’s important to make a kit to be more independent in times of need and to help the recovery process to run smoother.
