Public Safety Canada’s Emergency Preparedness Week
BUILT GREEN programs: an avenue towards resiliency & preparedness
Public Safety Canada’s Emergency Preparedness Week, May 3–9, reminds Canadians to take measures to better protect themselves and their families during emergencies. In the built environment, that can mean disaster preparedness and a more healthy home, with improved air quality, durability—all addressed in our green building programs.
As we currently sit in the midst of a global pandemic and climate change, emergency preparedness and a focus on building healthier, more environmentally homes becomes ever more important. In recognition, we used our communication channels to support and promote Emergency Preparedness Week and bring awareness to specific avenues for builders and homeowners to address these problems—our sustainable building programs, which include specific resiliency checklist items, alongside pathways to building healthier, more resource-efficient homes.
