You can’t predict an emergency but you can Prepare for One!
Emergency Preparedness Week was May 3rd -9th, encouraging everyone to take three simple steps to become better prepared to face a range of emergencies:
• Know the risks
• Make a plan
• Have an emergency kit:
Put together emergency supplies to keep you and your family safe for at least 72 hours, the time it may take emergency responders to reach you.
On May 3rd 2015 the County of Oxford launched www.oxford72hours.ca as a new resource for disaster planning for Oxford County homes and businesses.
Congratulations goes to our two winners of the Oxford72Hours.ca contest.
Kim Hutcheson & Tina Sawdon
Each of our winners will be receiving a Red Cross Emergency Survival Kit, valued
at $60. Visit the 72 Hour Club page to learn more about preparedness and building a survival kit for your family.
