Emergency Preparedness Week focuses on planning ahead
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
April 29, 2022
Welland, ON – Emergency Preparedness Week (May 1-7, 2022) encourages Canadians to take concrete actions to protect themselves and their families during emergencies better.
This designated week is a national effort led by Public Safety Canada, provincial and territorial emergency management organizations, Indigenous organizations, non-governmental organizations, and the private sector. This year, Emergency Preparedness (EP) Week is May 1-7, 2022, and the theme is: Be Ready for Anything.
A collaborative event undertaken by provincial and territorial emergency management organizations supporting activities at the local level, in concert with Public Safety Canada and partners, EP Week encourages Canadians to take three simple steps to become better prepared to face a range of emergencies: know the risks, make a plan, get an emergency kit.
“We know that not everyone has the support or the means to manage an emergency,” said Fire Chief Adam Eckhart. “Because we all have a role to play, we should reach out to our friends, family, and neighbours and inquire if they have any vulnerabilities in managing an emergency. Being prepared is the first step in managing your way through.”
Emergency preparedness increases knowledge and reduces risks in an unforeseen event; emergency preparedness is everyone’s responsibility. Natural, technological, and environmental disasters often occur without warning. For example, when floods or tornadoes strike a community, accidents such as chemical spills, or even service disruptions such as power failures, being unprepared for a disaster can create significant disruptions.
Everyone has a role to play in an emergency. EP Week is an opportunity for you to take action to ensure you are prepared to protect yourself, your family, and your community during an emergency.
Welland, ON – On Tuesday, May 10, the City of Welland will participate in the Provincial Day of Action on Litter, supporting keeping our environment and community clean.
The City is committed to taking action on reducing waste and encourages residents to participate by managing waste going to landfills and preventing litter from entering our environments.
Debris entering our waterways can break down into micro-plastics and hurt wildlife and ecosystems, which can cause long-term negative impacts on our environment.
“Our City is fortunate to have a body of water in the recreational canal that provides a safe, clean source of drinking water and serves as a place to be active and enjoy the outdoors,” said Rob Axiak, director of community services. “As a community, we can work together to prevent the entry of unnecessary garbage or refuse into an important feature in our City.”
Residents who wish to participate in the 2022 Provincial Day of Action on Litter can volunteer to clean up Welland’s local parks, streets, neighbourhoods, and the Niagara College area. When collecting garbage, all participants should consider wearing highly visible clothing or vests and other protective clothing, gloves, and footwear.
Public Works will provide garbage bags available for Welland City Hall reception. Participants can drop off full garbage bags at the Welland Arena on King Street, where City employees will dispose of the collection.
