Get Ready in the Park - Cancelled

Get Ready in the Park - Emergency Preparedness Week

The City of Edmonton has cancelled the Get Ready in the Park event on Saturday, May 7. The City is focusing resources on helping people affected by the massive wildfires in support of Fort McMurray and the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo. The City is operating a reception centre for residents forced to evacuate.

We appreciate your support for this event and encourage citizens to learn how they can be prepared in the event of an emergency at edmonton.ca/EmergencyPreparedness.


The City of Edmonton’s Office of Emergency Management organizes Get Ready in the Park during Emergency Preparedness Week.

  • Find out how to keep your loved ones and pets safe for up to a week.
  • Find out about food safety tips during power outages.
  • Practice a fire escape plan with your kids.
  • Enter to win emergency-response themed prizes.

Look at the Get Ready in the Park Photo Gallery from previous years to see what kind of fun we had.
