Emergency Preparedness Week: Be Ready for Anything 

This year, Emergency Preparedness Week is May 1-7, 2022. Emergency Preparedness Week is a national awareness initiative that has taken place annually since 1996. During Emergency Preparedness Week, the Town of Tillsonburg is encouraging you to take three simple steps:

Know the risks
Although the consequences of disasters can be similar, knowing the risks specific to our community and our region can help you better prepare.

Make a plan
Where would you go if you needed to evacuate? What would you need to take with you? Answering these questions now will help you and your family know what to do in a real emergency.

Get an emergency kit
During an emergency, you will need some basic supplies. You may need to get by without power or tap water. Be prepared to be self-sufficient for at least 72 hours in an emergency.
