BC EMERGENCY PROGRAM

ARE YOU PREPARED
FOR AN EMERGENCY?


The two large earthquakes off the west coast this weekend, once again brings to the forefront, the need to be self sufficient in case of a major emergency.
You should be able to take care of yourself for at least five days in the event of a major disaster. All of the usual things we take for granted will be suspended during such an emergency. Power will likely be out which means you may not have water, the ability to refuel your car etc. Stores would also be closed so you would not be able to purchase food or other necessities for several days.
It is, and will be up to you to take care of yourself and family in the aftermath of a serious event.
To see how to best prepare for major events such as flooding, earthquake, tsunami etc. visit the BC government Emergency Program site by clicking here.
