The Strathcona Regional District has announced the launch of a new emergency preparedness program.
Called the Neighbourhood Emergency Preparedness Program Guide, it will be used to provide tools and direction for communities in the district to be prepared, in case of a disaster.
Board chair Mark Baker says the program is an important step towards building more resilient communities.
“With these updates, we’re hoping to create self-reliant communities where neighbours are checking on each other and making sure we’re all ready to handle whatever disaster may come our way,” said Baker.
The district says while the program focuses on emergency preparedness, you are encouraged to use the program’s structure for community safety, food security, and FireSmart.
