Great BC Shakeout

Posted in: ,

B.C. sits on one of the world’s most seismically active regions, with more than 3,000 earthquakes recorded every year. Most are too small to be felt, but the risk of one being big enough to cause damage is very real.

Tomorrow we have an opportunity to practice earthquake response preparedness and consider our level of preparedness during the Great British Columbia ShakeOut. At 10:18, citizens across the province will drop, cover and hold on to practice the immediate safety measures to take during an earthquake.

The Legislative Assembly will be in session tomorrow. The members of this House and staff members will be joining hundreds of thousands of British Columbians that will participate in this drill.
