Shake Zone at the Fire Hall Centre for the Arts

May 03, 2016

Get shaken awake about your emergency preparedness! 


We've been told for years that the "Big One" is on it's way. Aside from a few shakes here and there, few of us have ever experienced a large-scale earthquake.

Enter: Shake Zone.

Shake Zone is a mobile earthquake simulator that allows people to experience what a big earthquake can feel like. During Emergency Preparedness Week, you're invited to bring your family and neighbours to the Firehall Centre for the Arts from 12 until 6 pm on Friday, May 6 to try Shake Zone and learn how to get prepared for an earthquake together.

Check out the video from last year:

The event will also feature information booths including EMBC, Red Cross, Fortis BC, ShakeOut BC, FAST ltd, and Insurance Board of Canada.
