Two local highschools did some improv to play out some emergency scenarios to kick-off Emergency Preparedness Week.
The week official begins on May 2nd until the 6th, and is recognized across the country with cities encouraging its residents to prepare themselves for emergency situations.
If an emergency occurs, residents need to be prepared to provide for themselves and their families for a minimum of 72 hours.
A kit filled with supplies such as food, water, clothing, medication, flashlight, crank radio and cash should be in a portable container and easy to find should residents need to evacuate quickly.
Today, Lockerby Composite School donated $2,700 to the Canadian Red Cross’ Japan Earthquake/Asia-Pacific Tsunami Relief Fund.
