NEW - Flood news release issued to help Canadians prepare
The CPA issued its annual flood news release on April 8 - Propane users can do their part by acting now and being prepared in the event of a flood.
It encouraged Canadians to be prepared for flood warnings, particularly as the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic continues across the country.
Many municipalities and provincial governments have proactively taken steps to prepare for annual high water levels, and with social distancing and quarantine measures now in place, officials are also looking at different strategies to respond to rising water levels. The CPA encouraged residents to also do their part to protect themselves and their property in the event of a flood.
“We are in uncharted territory in dealing with the COVID-19 virus and many Canadians are already under a great deal of stress,” said Nathalie St-Pierre, CPA President and CEO. “But if propane users are proactive and are prepared for flood warnings, they can help to alleviate additional pressure by ensuring they are emergency ready and keep their homes and family safe.” Click here for CPA’s flood safety tips.
