Pitt Meadows City Hall
Description / Summary

Be prepared for emergencies, not scared. Older adults are among the most vulnerable during an emergency and may face additional challenges due to mobility, health, or support issues. Being prepared for emergencies allows you and your family to survive disasters for at least 72 hours, when first responders may not be able to reach you and community emergency support services may be overwhelmed. Watch the video and learn the five steps to being prepared for emergencies. This film was produced in partnership with the Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows, Katzie, Seniors Network with funding by the Government of Canada’s New Horizons for Seniors Program. The film is offered with several accessibility options including sign language, closed captioning, and descriptive text. Please visit for more details.
