It is important that everyone, from school aged children to seniors, understand that emergency preparedness is something in which we all play a very important role. Disasters take many forms: floods, winter storms, summer heat waves, chemical spills, house fires, earthquakes, etc.

When disaster does strike, the best protection is knowing what to do. Ensure that you, your family and your neighbourhood are prepared before a disaster strikes.

Learn how to minimize home hazards, assemble emergency supplies and develop a family reunion plan.

Disasters have been occurring around the globe with unprecedented frequency, bringing to the forefront the need to be prepared for disasters of all kinds. In Burnaby we believe that the more work we do today, the more we can help the residents and businesses in our community.

With preparation, the City of Burnaby's Emergency Management Program can become more resilient to the effects of a disaster and better prepared to cope after a major disaster.

Everyone is welcome for this free program, but seating is limited. Programs with low enrollment may be cancelled, please register by phone at: 604-299-8955, in-person, or online.

If you cannot attend the program, please contact the Library so someone else can have your spot. Thank you.
