National Emergency Preparedness Week is May 5-11. This national awareness campaign was launched in 1996 and involves provincial and territorial governments, Public Safety Canada, non-governmental partner agencies and you.The week of activities is designed to build awareness and encourage Canadians to become better prepared for emergencies. RRU is contributing to the week through a variety of activities one of which involves you in building our understanding of the level of preparedness on campus.Students from the RRU Disaster and Emergency Management graduate programs are on campus for a three-week residency. As part of one on of their class assignments, these students will be reaching out to members of the RRU community to find out how prepared students, staff, and faculty and their families are for emergencies and disasters.
Students will be conducting short interviews (10-15 minutes) with people on campus. We hope that you will take the time to answer their questions and contribute to our understanding of how prepared we are as a community and as individuals. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact the RRU DEM faculty, Robin Cox and Jean Slick.
