Keep Calm and Adapt event at Town Hall on April 30, 2016

The town is launching the second annual Keep Calm and Adapt, its emergency and extreme weather preparedness event designed to help residents build their knowledge and personal resilience to our changing climate.

The event will take place at Town Hall on Saturday, April 30, 2016, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. to coincide with Emergency Preparedness Week, National Safe Building Month and National Safe Boating Week all taking place in May.

Exhibitors will be on hand to discuss programs and incentives available in Canada, Ontario and specifically Halton Region that can help you implement climate change mitigation and adaptation actions to help protect lives and properties. There will be lots of information and activities available for all age groups including Science Ninjas, emergency vehicles, prizes and giveaways.
