KEEP Workshops 2020 – Are You Ready!?

Neighbourhood Disaster Readiness Workshop for Leaders

Authorities repeatedly warn us that in the event of a major disaster or emergency (prolonged power outages, massive fires, severe weather events, floods, chemical accidents, floods, earthquakes, security incidents, etc.), professional 1st responders are unlikely to be available to help in the first hours, days and maybe weeks afterwards. How will you, your household, and neighbours survive? What if the key to your or your loved ones’ comfort and survival isn’t just what you know and have, but what your neighbours do as well? Neighbours who are prepared and have a plan to quickly work together in teams can significantly lessen the loss of life and property, and reduce injuries and panic. And their neighbourhood is most likely one of the ones that can return to normal as soon as possible.
