Are you and your family prepared for an emergency? Discover what it takes to be prepared for the unexpected during Emergency Preparedness Week May 5 to 11! The Town of Stony Plain will be hosting Emergency Preparedness Day on May 11 from 10 AM to 3 PM outside of Town Office (4905 – 51 Avenue). The theme of this year’s event is Be Prepared. Know Your Risks and aims to help residents identify gaps in their emergency preparedness, understand risks in the region, and provide helpful advice and resources to prepare for emergencies.

“Emergencies can happen to anyone, anywhere at any time,” says Mayor William Choy. “Our region has faced its share of emergencies, from forest fires to floods, reminding us that no one is beyond the reach of these situations. Emergency Preparedness Day is a great way to come together as a community, meet local first responders, learn how to identify potential disasters, and explore what we each need to do to be prepared.”

"We all have a part to play in disaster readiness. Emergency Preparedness Day is about empowering residents with the knowledge and resources they need to be ready for any disaster,” says Fire Chief Trevor Mistal. “Preparedness equates to resilience, and resilience improves our community's ability to endure and bounce back from emergencies.”
