Thunder Bay neighbourhoods are encouraged to get to know each other so they can band together in case of an emergency.
EarthCare Thunder Bay is hosting a series of get-togethers to connect community better.
Spokesperson Amy Coomes tells us it’s a good idea to be prepared.
“Natural disasters [are] happening all over the country. Neighbours are pulling together over these concerning situations, and we want neighbours to get together before these things happen, get to know each other so that in case of an emergency, even if it’s a small one, you can say ‘hey, I need some help,'” Coomes explained.
A north side gathering took place last night, and one is planned for the south side next week.
