Get Prepared for Emergency Situations

Every year, thousands of people face emergency situations that can affect their lives forever. Emergencies can change an entire neighbourhood in a matter of days so it’s important to be prepared before disasters strike.

Although earthquakes within the Comox Valley are rare, it’s important to be ready. Join us for a FREE online earthquake preparedness information session featuring Alison Bird, Earthquake Seismologist with Natural Resources Canada, as she talks about earthquakes, tectonics, our local hazards, and how we can all get prepared.

The Comox Valley Emergency Program has a number of simple steps to help get you prepared so you are not caught off guard. Residents need to be prepared to be self-sufficient for a week or more following a major disaster.
