Emergency Preparedness Week Contest



What is an Emergency? An 'Emergency' is defined as a "Serious situation or occurrence that happens and demands immediate actions". This blogpost brings awareness of Emergency Prepardness Week which runs from May 5th until May 11th.

I recently returned from a vacation in Malibu California and faced the unsure reality of my safety during my trip. On my vacation I had experienced an earthquake and one of the largest emergency evacuations with bush fires in California that were only metres from my location. At the time, i relied on Social Media and tv for updates but what happens if i did not have power or access to these resources? What would I do? This demonstrates that emergencies can happen unexpectedely at anytime. According to Red Cross Canada, an emergency has occurred in each province with over 2,300 disasters in the last year. So have you done anything to be prepared for an Emergency? Do you even know what to expect or do in the event of an Emergency? According to Red Cross Canada it can take up to 72 hours before emergency responders attend to you. So are you prepared?

The Canadian Red Cross has many helpful resources to help you and your family plan for an emergency. To learn more about how to make an emergency plan, what to pack in an emergency kit, and about the risks in your area, visit Red Cross Canada Emergency Tips

In addition the Canadian Red Cross has partnered with ETON to give a couple of prizes/radios to my readers: An Eton Radio solar crank powered radio. The ETON MicroLink FR 170 Weather Radio and the ETON SolarLinkFR370 Weather Radio. All you have to do is spin the crank and it generates power enough to even charge a USB phone charger.

your website? Its very well written; I love
what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of
content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.
Maybe you could space it out better?

Any suggestions?
