Prepare & Act

The Rural Communities Social Services Inc. aims at assisting the residents to be well-prepared for an emergency, especially living amongst a region surrounded by forestry, dense scrub and very limited water resource.
Knowing how to assess the signs that make up an emergency helps the community know how to handle it. In addition, being well-prepared for an emergency will pay off when it's time to handle any emergency situation.
