This year, Emergency Preparedness Week is May 2 - 8, 2021.

Emergency Preparedness Week is a national awareness initiative that has taken place annually since 1996. It is a collaborative event undertaken by provincial and territorial emergency management organizations supporting activities at the local level, in concert with Public Safety Canada and partners. EP Week encourages Canadians to take three simple steps to become better prepared to face a range of emergencies:

  • Know the risks
  • Make a plan, include your pets in that plan
  • Get an emergency kit ready for your family and your pet.

               Support our "Comfurt Kit" Program

When disaster strikes, and families are evacuated, some are forced to leave with only the clothes on their back. Just like our partners, the Canadian Red Cross, who supply Comfort Kits items, we supply "Comfurt Kits" that contain everything your will need for your cat or dog. At this time we have Large Dog, Small Dog and Cat " Comfurt Kits"

We also have a "Comfurt Kit Sponsorship program. For more details, please contact information@dartns.org
