Did you know that Calgary is known as the disaster capital of Canada? Emergencies can happen anytime, anywhere. Emergencies can happen without warning. You can lessen the impact of an emergency or disaster by knowing what to do before a disaster strikes.
The Calgary Emergency Management Agency (CEMA) wants to understand how prepared you are for an emergency or disaster in Calgary. We are particularly interested in knowing how newcomers, older adults, Racialized community members, people with disabilities and urban Indigenous community members find and act on information related to disasters and hazards in Calgary. This information will be used to build a new emergency preparedness program, Ready Calgary, that better meets the needs of those most vulnerable to the disaster risks and hazards in Calgary.
After completing the survey, you’ll have a chance to enter your name and email address for one of ten $50 gift cards.
The survey is available online in Amharic, Arabic, Chinese, English, Filipino, Punjabi and Spanish. The survey is open from Nov. 14 to Dec. 18. If you would prefer to complete a print survey or have questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
