PROCLAMATION: Emergency Preparedness Week

WHEREAS:

Emergency Preparedness Week is a national awareness initiative that has taken place annually since 1996. It is an opportunity to encourage Canadians to take concrete actions to be better prepared to protect themselves and their families during emergencies; and

WHEREAS:

The Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury recognizes the importance of Emergency Management in Ontario and the role of government to help secure a strong and healthy tomorrow; and
