Features of the Website
Translated material. Most of our web pages have been translated into multiple languages (Arabic, Chinese, Punjabi, and Spanish). You can see the translation links at the top right hand corner of each webpage. The emergency kit brochure is our only material translated in French at this time, but we hope to have more French translations in the future.
Sharable content for social media. Get Prepared: 60-second emergency tips is a video series aimed to provide preparedness information in simple to follow steps. The videos are available on our webpages and can be found on YourAlberta’s YouTube channel.
Printable fact sheets and brochures. While social distancing is in effect, printable material will likely not be a part of your communications plan. However, it is important to note that our website includes printable material that will be available for you to use when social isolation is no longer our reality.
Smartphone and tablet-friendly content. The content on our website is in HTML format creating a user-friendly experience no matter what device you are using.
