Free emergency preparedness workshops kick off in Surrey

May 6 to 12 is Emergency Preparedness Week

The City of Surrey Fire Services is hosting three free courses during Emergency Preparedness Week to help residents be confident they’re ready if disaster strikes.

The city says the workshops will cover how to “minimize hazards in your home, find supplies you need, react during and after an emergency and evacuate or (create a) shelter-in-place.”
