OKA EMERGENCY AWARENESS PROGRAM RUN BY VOLUNTEERS FROM ONTARIO KONKANI COMMUNITY
The Emergency Preparedness Program (EPP) was one of the eight programs identified during the Focus Group Meeting held on April 23, 2017. The aim of the program is to create an emergency awareness and be ready for an eventuality. Emergency may vary from an unexpected event that requires help and/or support to a death in the family. The program is run by volunteers and participation is voluntary.
This program is not just for the seniors, it is for all. As a matter of fact, youth who have parents, grandparents, spouses or siblings will find this program very helpful. These events benefit all our association members and we encourage all to attend.
