Islanders’ feedback wanted on provincial emergency response efforts

Islanders can participate in an online survey to share their perspective on the provincial response to post-tropical storm Dorian for potential future improvements.
 
The PEI Emergency Measures Organization (EMO) initiated the PEI All Hazards Emergency Plan to help Islanders prepare for post-tropical storm Dorian in advance of its landfall on September 8, 2019. EMO remained active for 13 days to coordinate provincial response and recovery efforts to help Islanders repair damages. 

As part of EMO’s process for continual improvement, the Province committed to an independent review of its provincial response, which includes an online survey carried out by Calian Emergency Management Solutions

“Significant weather events are becoming more and more common and EMO is responsible to coordinate provincial response efforts during times of extraordinary need. Having experts like Calian look into how we did as a province and where we can make things better will only help us better prepare and support Islanders during the next emergency or disaster.”

-  Justice and Public Safety Minister Bloyce Thompson

As experts in emergency management solutions, Calian will be engaging Islanders, community partners, municipalities affected by Dorian for the independent review of the provincial response to this past weather event. Outcomes of the final report are expected this summer and it will help identify opportunities for improvement to address future weather and emergency events for the province.

Islanders can access the survey in English and French from February 14-28, 2020.
