Neighbourhood Preparedness

Neighbour Helping Neighbour

Community self-reliance is importantand  will be vital in the aftermath of any major disaster. By definition, a disaster will tax and overwhelm all local resources and response mechanisms. You need to be ready to be on your own for up to seven days without any outside assistance.

Victoria has strong interconnected communities that will be resilient. Beginning in 2017, Victoria Ready will empower neighbourhoods to embrace the 'Neighbour Helping Neighbour' mentality by offering a revamped Neighbourhood Emergency Preparedness Program (NEPP).

We will deliver training and support to community associations and stakeholders who are willing to donate time to prepare to respond in their communities.

While the NEPP initiative is still in its infancy, we hope that the end result will be communities that can come together and organize an effective 'Neighbour Helping Neighbour' response to any emergencies that our communities may face.

Please stay tuned for details coming summer 2017!

 

Everyday readiness for every person, every business, every organization.
