Emergency Preparedness Week 2016

posted in: Other | 0

This year Emergency Preparedness Week runs from May 1-7.

For those of us in Northern Alberta, the greatest risk is fire. Currently the Fire Danger level is High to Very high. According to the Canadian Wildland Fire Information System, Fire Danger is a relative index of how easy it is to ignite vegetation, how difficult a fire may be to control, and how much damage a fire may do.

Sign-Up for Alberta emergency alerts … there are apps for Android and Apple devices, you can follow using your Twitter account, and more. I have the app loaded on my mobile phone and set to give me alerts for my local area. For more information visit: http://www.emergencyalert.alberta.ca/content/about/signup.html    There is also an Alberta Wildfire App available from Alberta Agriculture and Forestry.
