This winter has brought severe weather to many parts of Canada – major storms, heavy snowfalls, and plunging temperatures across most of the country. Harsh winter weather takes a toll on buildings. If the full extent of winter damage goes undetected until spring, the result can be additional issues and costly repairs.
Whether you’re a commercial property owner, property manager or homeowner, your best defence against winter storm damage is knowing the danger zones and how to protect and restore your property.
This Sunday marked the start of Emergency Preparedness Week, an annual national event coordinated by Public Safety Canada, in close collaboration with the provinces, territories and partners. The timing could not be more fitting as the four-year anniversary of the Alberta Floods and one-year anniversary of Fort McMurray wildfires hover in the collective consciousness. Meanwhile, homeowners and businesses continue to hold down the fort amid a new breed of storms – constant reminders that climate change is causing a spike in natural disasters.
A Look Back at Fort McMurray and the Technological Advancements that Improved Disaster Recovery Efforts
November marks the six-month anniversary of the Fort McMurray wildfires, a catastrophe which mobilized a nation, and became the costliest natural disaster in Canada’s history.
Fire Prevention Week is commemorated in Canada from October 9 to 15. During this week, Canadians from coast to coast are invited to reflect on how to better prevent and proactively prepare for fires.
Being prepared is always the key to effective disaster management, and planning prevents debilitating repercussions.
