May 1-7 is Emergency Preparedness Week

The Climate Change Section is working in collaboration with Community and Government Services (CGS) to increase emergency preparedness awareness.  There are a few events going on this week in Iqaluit including a booth at Northmart today, Monday May 2 from 4pm-7pm.  On Wednesday, May 4 we will be showing the movie “Ordeal in the Arctic” at 6pm at the Astro Theatre, FREE of charge.

You can also check out the Finding True North Blog with a post about emergency preparedness here .  Take the quiz Tukisigiaqta and enter your email address, name and information at the end of the “On the Land” section for your chance to win a GPS from CGS, as well as other prizes.

Lastly, post a photo on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter with the hashtag Parnaksimajunga showing how you stay prepared when travelling on the land.  You will be entered for your chance to win a GPS or other prizes.
