It's 'Storm Preparedness Week' and the provincial government is reminding New Brunswickers they need to be prepared in case of an emergency.

Public Safety Minister Carl Urquhart says preparedness begins at home and that the province sees people are taking steps to ensure their families and communities are protected.

A 72-hour guide is available online.
