To mark Public Protection Week, the Town of Pincourt will proceed with a draw of six Red Cross emergency kits.
The reason for highlighting this event was to raise public awareness about the importance of being properly prepared to face a variety of emergency situations.
Emphasis was placed on the need for each family to prepare its own safety plan and emergency kit to ensure it can be self-sufficient for the first 72 hours in an emergency situation until help arrives.
