Dennis Vassart - Municipal Emergency Co-ordinator for Steinbach and the RM of Hanover.
The theme this week is "Be Emergency Ready"! So, the goal is to have people think ahead as to what they would do in an emergency. There are 3 simple steps to take care of. They are:
1. Know the risks - what can go wrong in our area?
2. Make a plan.
3. Get an emergency kit.
If you have to look after yourself for 72 hours, are you prepared to do that?
Note that there will be TWO tests this Wednesday, May 9th. The National Alert Ready Test will hit radio stations, TV's and cell phones between 1 and 2 pm. That same day between 5-6 pm, the Steinbach Alert Ready test till take place as well.
What a great reminder!! Thank you Dennis!!
