Next week (May 1-7) is Emergency Preparedness Week, and Dufferin County has partnered with the Canadian Red Cross, Environment Canada and Erika Longman Consulting in scheduling seminars – four next week and another on May 11.

Steve Murphy, Community Emergency Management Coordinator in Dufferin Community Services, says the workshops are designed “to help you prepare for the next big storm.”

The first seminar, dealing with personal preparedness, will be held at the Mel Lloyd Centre in Shelburne from 7 to 9 p.m. Monday.

The County Courthouse on Zina Street, Orangeville, will be the scene of the second seminar, which will inform attendees on the CanWARN Storm Spotter. It will run three hours, from 7 to 10 p.m.

On Wednesday, the Personal Preparedness seminar will be repeated at the Grand Valley Community Centre, 7 to 9 p.m.

Thursday’s seminar theme is “Prepared Pets.” It will be held at the Edelbrock Centre on Centre Street, Orangeville, and will run from 7 to 9 p.m.

On May 11, the Personal Preparedness workshop will be held a third time, this time at the Edelbrock Centre, 30 Centre St.

A poster outlining the plans advises: “Join Dufferin Emergency Management and our partners at one of our emergency preparedness seminars. Learn more about the risks, having a plan and making an emergency kit. Space is limited, please register soon.”
