About this Event

It's been on your to-do list for months, hasn't it? Building an emergency kit or a grab and go kit tends to be something we all know we are supposed to do, but often it's hard to find the time to put a kit together. The recent Novel Coronavirus pandemic has certainly put some people into the right frame of mind, but stocking up on hygiene supplies like toilet paper isn't the only consideration we should be making.

Make plans to attend one of our two information sessions with City staff including members of New Westminster Fire and Rescue and find out about what the City of New Westminster is doing to be prepared for when an emergecy strikes. Whether it is a flood, a fire, or The Big One, we need to be ready.

Participants will be provided with take-home information of what to put in their own emergency kits, specialized for their scenario whether they live in a condo, basement suite, house, or townhouse. We'll also touch on how to support loved ones or neighbours who live with disabilities, as well as considerations for children or pets. And, thanks to the generosity of local businesses, you'll get a number of items to put in your Grab and Go Kit in the event of an evacuation including:

  • First Aid Supplies donated by Pharmasave and London Drugs
  • Dental Supplies donated by Rexall and Life Dental
  • Emergency Water donated by Rexall
  • Toiletries bags donated by Patterson Brands
  • Pet food donated by Bosley's Pet Valu
  • Emergency food supplies donated by Save-On Foods

Plus, all attendees can enter to win one of two emergency kits donated by St. John's Ambulance!

Please note, it is really important that if you register for a space, that you attend, or contact us to cancel in advance. There are only 50 spaces per event, and we are anticipating a sell out crowd. We are offering this workshop at no cost, but it is important that if you register, you come, so it doesn't take away from someone else possibly attending.
