PEI Emergency Measures Organizations returns to normal operations
Islanders experienced minimal impacts due to post-tropical storm Teddy. As of this morning, PEI EMO returned their operations to routine monitoring.
“I am very proud of how seriously Islanders took EMO’s advice. Today, we’re all breathing a sigh of relief that Teddy was not as damaging as it could have been. We still have many weeks left in the hurricane season so we should all have plans in place to stay safe. It never hurts to be prepared for an emergency.”
Minister of Justice and Public Safety, Bloyce Thompson.
The PEI Emergency Measures Organization monitors for any situations that may put residents’ lives, environment or economy at risk and utilizes the four phases of emergency management to address those situations as needed.
“We learned a great deal from last year’s hurricane season and are continually looking at ways to doing things differently. As PEI EMO goes back to routine monitoring, we continue to encourage Islanders to regularly check on their household preparedness plans,” adds Tanya Mullally, Provincial Emergency Management Coordinator.
The Province thanks all Islanders, municipalities, community organizations, public utilities, firefighters, law enforcement, Island EMS and peace officers for their hard work preparing and supporting the minimal impacts of post-tropical storm Teddy.
