Emergency Response Planning Discussion (Pre/During/Post) – How do we protect one another with an Emergency Response Plan (Hurricane Fiona hits PAB)

Hurricane Fiona was one of the worst natural disasters to hit Atlantic Canada, and the Canadian Red Cross was activated to support those in need, and the personnel who provided the support. There were a variety of needs to be met, and the Canadian Red Cross works diligently to help communities prepare, and how we respond can change based on the ask. This presentation will cover how the Canadian Red Cross helps prepare, and overview of our work with Fiona, and how we support our personnel on the ground.
