EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS WEEK WEBINAR:
If you’re ready for earthquakes, you’re ready for anything!
Earthquakes can impact all of us, no matter where you live in the province, which is why this year’s webinar theme for Emergency Preparedness Week is “If you’re ready for earthquakes, you’re ready for anything!”
During this webinar, the team from PreparedBC will provide you with resources and tips for getting prepared for all types of emergencies, including earthquakes.
A seismologist with Natural Resources Canada will talk about:
- B.C.’s earthquake risk; and
- The incoming National Earthquake Early Warning System, which can detect earthquakes and send out emergency alerts
Special guests from the B.C. Earthquake Alliance will share information on managing risk, and the ShakeOutBC team will give a preview of how to stay safe and protect yourself during an earthquake and what to expect during the Great ShakeOutBC Drill in October.
Attendees will receive a list of resources discussed during the presentation and be entered to win a 4-person emergency kit.
PreparedBC, the public education program of the Ministry of Emergency Management and Climate Readiness
Thursday, May 11, 6:30 – 8:00 p.m.
