Planning for provincewide emergency preparedness exercise
Officials met in Fredericton today to plan for Brunswick Bravo 2019, a provincewide emergency preparedness exercise scheduled in May. The one-day exercise will be based upon the scenario of damaging weather across the province and is designed to give communities, municipalities, First Nations and local service districts an opportunity to practice their respective roles during an emergency. The exercise is open to all communities and, so far, 90 have signed-up to participate. From left: Neguac Deputy Mayor Léandre Rousselle; J.R.
