Developed by the City of Richmond this emergency program was designed to build knowledge and awareness of risks and hazards during a disaster. With this workshop our hope was to create a base for a neighbourhood emergency response plan and to provide information for better awareness within our community. We certainly now have many of our neighbours interested in working on an emergency plan.
Due to it's popularity we held several sessions as the participants from the first session spread the word on this very informative program that is relevant to everyone in the community.
The success of our program was largely due to the presentation. Our speaker was very engaging, answering any and all questions. She was very knowledgeable with an extensive background in a variety of emergency situations that she shared with us.
