Following the experience of the 2013 Alberta High River Floods, there was growing concern about community disaster preparedness. In response, a concerned group of citizens with financial support from Mount Royal University Centre for Community Disaster Research, designed, planned and implemented two one-day workshops in May 2016. The first workshop targeted members of the Filipino community who may have English as a second language. The second workshop targeted the general public. In total, there were 33 participants and six organizers. We conducted surveys before and after the workshop to get a sense of what worked well and what could work even better.
