Preparedness Workshops

In our free Victoria Ready workshops learn how to prepare for emergencies, make a plan, get your kit together, and connect with your neighbours. Depending on the type of emergency, you and your family should be able to cope a minimum of seven days without outside assistance.

Update: Emergency Preparedness Workshops and events have been cancelled across the region in an effort to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission. You can now access our emergency preparedness video online.

Please stay tuned as these events will be rescheduled at a later date. For more information about emergency preparedness, please visit www.prepareyourself.ca or reach out to VictoriaReady by email, telephone, or social media.

Business Continuity Workshop

In addition to being individually prepared, it is a good idea for businesses and organizations to have continuity plans. These help to ensure critical functions will be available to your customers and suppliers in the event of an emergency. Learn more or contact us to set up a presentation.
