Practice it

Emergencies happen. Be prepared for anything.

Once you have your plan and your kit, it is important to review and practice your plan to make sure everyone understands their responsibilities, to update phone numbers, and restock emergency kit items.

Here are some suggestions on when you can practice your emergency plan (at least once a year):

  • When you test your fire alarm (once every six months)

  • During Family Day Long weekend (February)

  • During Earth Hour (end of March each year)

  • During Emergency Preparedness Week (first full week in May)
