Brampton - Emergency Preparedness Week, which takes place May 5-11, is a good time to ask yourself a question: Is my family prepared for an emergency?

The Region of Peel’s website – peelregion.ca/prep – has information and resources to help residents prepare for emergencies such as power outages, flooding, severe summer storms as well as for emergencies on the road including driving in floods and in fog.

“As the Region of Peel celebrates Emergency Preparedness Week, we want to remind residents to be equipped and to know what to do if an emergency strikes,” said Andrew Cooper, Manager (Acting) of Peel Regional Emergency Program. “It only takes a few simple steps to better prepare yourself for an emergency at home or on the road.”

During the Week, Peel residents can also learn helpful tips directly from emergency preparedness experts at interactive and educational events organized by the Cities of Brampton and Mississauga and the Town of Caledon in partnership with the Region of Peel:

• Saturday, May 4, Bramalea City Centre, 9:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.
• Sunday, May 5, Erin Mills Town Centre, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
• Thursday, May 9 and Friday, May 10, Wal-Mart, Bolton, 5 to 9 p.m.

The Peel Regional Emergency Program (PREP) works closely with area municipalities, the provincial government and many community partners to ensure that the Region is ready and prepared should an emergency occur. PREP is also responsible for maintaining the Region of Peel Emergency Plan, which outlines how the Region and its partners will respond to emergencies.
