Emergency Planning and the Non-profit Sector, Ontario Nonprofit Network


March 28, 2017

12:00- 1:00 pm.

It’s an emergency! Is your nonprofit ready?

Forces of nature can quickly change our cities. If your city or town issued a statement emergency, shutting down electricity and water, how prepared is your organization to continue operations? Western Calgary’s 2013 major flood is one example, with the city shut down and 10% of the city evacuated. Emergency preparedness and response was not part of the nonprofit or public sector mindset, even though the sector plays a key role responding and recovering from emergencies.
